---Original Post---

Polls have closed in the U.K.'s snap general election, and exit polling indicates that Theresa May and the Conservative Party will remain in power as the largest party, but may not have a majority in parliament. The Scottish Nationalist Party did not do as well as expected and suffered big losses.

If these exit polls are accurate, this means that there will be a hung parliament. A party must win 326 seats for a majority.

This post will be updated as results come in.
