Election 2015: Flurry of voters sees turnout odds tumble


Reports are circulating that the 2015 UK General Election is likely to witness a higher than expected turnout. 

That’s prompted Ladbrokes to cut the odds on between 70% – 75% of voters going to the polls to 2/1, from 3/1.

And it appears that Britons have flocked to the polls in large numbers as the closest General Election campaign for a generation nears its conclusion.

Euronews led with a ‘record turnout’ story earlier this afternoon while The Hindu are reporting that voter turnout ‘is likely to be 74%’. Turnout in the 2010 General Election was 65.1%.

Polls close at 22:00 UK time with a snap exit poll expected shortly after.

The Conservatives are currently 2/9 to win most seats and 1/5 to win the most votes with current incumbent David Cameron a 4/5 shot to be the Prime Minister on July 1.

Here’s a flavour of how Election fever has swept a nation:
