The U.K. Parliament ensured Tuesday that its citizens will head to the polls after voting 438 to 20 in favor of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's General Election Bill. The election will be held on Dec. 12, with both the Tories and Labor confident that they can win at the polls. Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn tried to move the election three days earlier to ensure more students would be available to vote, but his proposal was rejected 315 to 295.
Who is favored to win? The bookmakers have given the conservatives an 85.7 percent chance of winning a majority in December. But whoever wins, voters hope the election will finally solve the Brexit deadlock.
