The last time I felt this tense while waiting for voting results was Eurovision.

YAAAASSS SHETLAND

VOTES FOR NO: 59%

VOTES FOR YES: 41%

dallydaydream:

Third declaration is in.

Area: Shetland

Turnout: 84%

Yes: 36%

No: 64%

Much like the Orkney turnout. More rural areas, more likely to vote conservatively. Scottish Independence is more of a liberal-friendly move.

Results currently standing at 41% to 59% in favour of No.

teapunks:

AND IT’S A NO FOR SHETLAND BY A STAGGERING 64%!!
Tonight is really looking up!

ventanillas:

Waiting for the Eurovision results is more exciting than this live coverage…

dominick-and-the-tardis:

If your only thoughts on Scottish independence are fandom related, please be quiet.

starberth:

taking a moment to appreciate that what’s happening in Scotland right now is very important, & that independence is never a simple thing to win, own, lose, live out, or keep

“Independence is for people who are enslaved — and we (Scotland) are not. India was colonized, they fought for independence and got it. But being a colony is totally different from being part of a union.” - Mani Raj

I am so happy the first declaration was a no.
