Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has voted in the ongoing general election in the United Kingdom.

Sunak voted early Thursday morning in North Yorkshire, BBC reports.

The Prime Minister and his wife Akshata Murty popped over to their polling station in a village hall in Northallerton, about half an hour after the polls opened.

Polls are now open in the UK general election as voters cast their ballots to elect local MPs and decide the country’s next government.

Voters need a valid photo ID to vote – passports and driving licences are among the accepted forms of ID.

Polling stations close at 10pm, with an exit poll shortly after to give an early indication of the results.

Recall that last weekend, Sunak slammed an anti-immigration Reform UK party campaigner for using racist slurs against him as the general election campaign entered its final week.

Campaigners were filmed making racist, homophobic and offensive comments in Clacton-on-Sea in eastern England, where the leader of Reform UK, Nigel Farage, is hoping to be elected as a Member of Parliament on Thursday.

One of the campaigners was heard using racist slur against Rishi Sunak who is British-Indian.
