LONDON (AP) Britons who have endured three years of wrangling over their countrys messy divorce from the European Union cast ballots today in an election billed as a way out of the Brexit stalemate and one of the deeply divided countrys most important votes since World War II.
The contest pits Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who says he will take Britain out of the EU by Jan. 31, against opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, who promises another referendum on Brexit.
All 650 seats in the House of Commons are up for grabs in the election, which is being held more than two years ahead of schedule.
