Bermudians Vote On Independence

A day after being sideswiped by Hurricane Felix, Bermudians voted Wednesday on whether to end 386 years of British colonial rule and declare independence.

Voter turnout was reported higher in white districts where ties to the British crown are stronger, and the man who steered efforts to achieve Bermuda’s independence conceded almost certain defeat.

Results are expected today.
