More than 46 million people are registered to vote in the British referendum today, answering the question: "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union."

Polls are showing the “remain” and “leave” camps in a dead heat. But the bookies are saying that the "remain" camp is ahead with 86 percent, compared to just 14 percent for those favoring a Brexit.

NPR’s International Correspondent, Peter Kenyon, talks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about the latest developments.
