Greek Voters Head to Polls in Vital Bailout Referendum


Greek voters started casting ballots early Sunday morning in a tightly-contested bailout referendum that will shape the country's future — and send shock waves through the global economy, The Associated Press reported. Early polls showed Greeks split almost evenly on the issue: "yes" to accept more austerity measures from lenders like the European Union and the International Monetary Fund, or "no" to defiantly reject the deal. Left-wing Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has called on Greeks to vote "no" in the referendum, arguing that defying more austerity measures will strengthen the beleaguered country's hand in negotiations with Eurozone creditors. Polling stations are open until 7 p.m. local time (noon ET). Get More at NBC News
