  • Sides in Scottish referendum make final push Associated Press - 16 hrs ago
    CORRECTS DAY OF WEEK TO THURSDAY FROM MONDAY - This is an image taken Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014, of YES and NO supporters for the Scottish Independence Referendum stand next to each other in  Edinburgh. Across Scotland, dinner table talk is getting heated as families fight over how to vote in Scotland's independence referendum.

With both sides neck-and-neck in the polls, the rival campaigns have called on their core supporters to make a last ditch attempt to swing the vote.  (AP Photo/Andrew Milligan/PA) UNITED KINGDOM OUT
