Update: "Leave" is ahead with 50 percent of the votes tallied, bumping the probability of a UK exit from the EU to 80 percent.

Update II: UK Independence Party Leader Nigel Farage, who earlier Thursday night all but conceded to the "Remain" campaign after looking at early exit polling, just tweeted this more hopeful-sounding message.

Farage is also calling for Prime Minister David Cameron to resign if the UK votes to leave the EU. Cameron had urged Britain to remain. 

Original Post

The early Brexit voting is also having a major impact on the U.S. stock market.
