Voters Say They've 'Never Seen Queues Like It' As UK Goes To Polls In General Election

WARNING: DO NOT LET THIS PUT YOU OFF FROM VOTING, THIS IS VERY ENCOURAGING!

Voters are taking to social media to report the longest queues they have ever seen at polling stations this morning.

Pictures have shown lines snaking around street corners and around buildings with people making sure their voice is heard in what has been dubbed the 'most important general election in a generation'.

The polling stations have been open since 7am this morning, some people have been waiting 45 minutes and others have reported queues of more than 100 people. But don't let this put you off voting - standing in an orderly line is what we do. It's our thing.

Taking to Twitter, one voter wrote: "The queue at our polling station is the longest I have ever seen it #GE2019".

Another advised people: "Vote early, long queues later may mean doors close on you. Don't get caught out... 10pm cut off."

If you weren't going to vote (I'm not going to call you a fool... but you are) and now you want to get involved in this juicy queue formation game it's SO easy - well, that's if you've registered to vote already.

All you have to do is go to your local polling station - if you don't know where it is DON'T WORRY, follow this link and enter your postcode.

You don't have to take your poll card with you if you can't find it. You can just turn up, give your name and address to the staff inside the polling station - this will usually be a public building like a school or church hall - when you arrive. They'll give you a ballot paper containing a list of the people, parties or options you can vote for.
