2014 Scotland rejects Independence

No 55.3% Yes 44.7% Turnout 84.6% from a register of 97% of eligible voters. Held 18 September 2014. The Yes campaign entered the official regulated period at the end of May about 14 points behind in the polls. They reduced that lead in the run-up to the vote perhaps being ahead at one point but they couldn’t hold on to the lead and as second thoughts prevailed they voted on referendum day almost 11 points behind the No side.
