(AP/PIX11) -- Scotland residents are deciding, Thursday, whether the country should leave Britain after more than 300 years.

Polls are open across the country and more than four-million people have registered to vote.

Polls suggest the result is too close to call, with the pro-independence Yes side gaining momentum in the final weeks of campaigning.

First Minister Alex Salmond is casting his vote near his home in northeast Scotland.

If the Yes side prevails he will realize a long-held dream of leading his country to independence after an alliance with England formed in 1707.
