The long weeks of campaigning are over; the debates, polls, bullying, rows and more have ended; Wednesday evening the ballot boxes arrived; Thursday 7am BST polling stations in Scotland opened their doors to let in the electorate.
It is expected that the turn out in Thursday's referendum will be high.
There are always some no shows but with such an historic vote and so much at stake it may only be the undecided that stay away.
The 307 year union with the rest of the UK is trembling but will it fall and shatter?
Throughout Thursday TEK will update this report with events as they happen.
Whatever the outcome of the referendum we are in for an exciting day and a close run vote.
Good luck to Scotland and the British Isles. Friday we will know if these isles are still the United Kingdom or not.
Thursday - the big day
Some Scottish voters were quick to cast their votes. Polling stations opened their doors at 7amd and in many regions people were already queueing outside.
Voting has not only been brisk it has been record breaking in every way. The Scottish referendum is a first in the UK, it is a first for allowing 16-year-olds plus a vote and it now seems it will have received a record turn-out.
Voters know that this vote is crucial and those who believe in independence, plus those who don't want to make sure they help their camp swing a win.
Polling stations have been busy throughout the day but there have been some attempts at voter intimidation, even if that is only daubing polling stations with Yes Graffiti.
Polling stations close at 10pm Thursday BST and the result will be known early Friday.
If it is NO to independence pundits predict or expect that SNP leader and Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond will resign and his deputy Nicola Sturgeon will take his place.
It is a Yes vote presumably Mr Salmond will be the big cheese in a new independent Scotland.
