Should Scotland be an independent country?

The Scottish Government has launched its white paper ahead of the independence referendum due in 10 months’ time. The question that’ll be asked is: "Should Scotland be an independent country?"

While only people in Scotland will vote, we wanted to see the answer from across the UK.

Note: We have detected unusual voting patterns on the 'I live in Scotland' vote' inc a disproportionate number of Scottish voters (even taking into account the topic). Its likely there�ve been email/social media campaigns to drum up voters. So the result may be far from representative.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
