And Carrie took to Twitter to issue a rallying cry to Brits to brave the torrential rain toback Boris before the polls slam shut at 10pm.
She tweeted: “Its dark, rainy and pretty miserable out there but to all who are braving it to get out the vote, keep going! You are all heroes.
“Only 3 and a half hours to go!
Symonds has been steadfast by Boris’s side throughout his battle for PM, with the pair’s first going public with their relationship during his leadership bid in June 2019.
RACE AGAINST TIME
HOAR revealed yesterday Mr.Johnson hinted that he is planning to propose to Carrie who lives with him at Number 10 after the election chaos has died down.
Mr Johnson has also tweeted this evening to urge Brits to “vote Conservative to get Brexit done”in the most important election of a generation.
Voters braved freezing temperatures to line up outside community halls, churches and schools to have their say – and risked being a touch late for work.
Polls opened at 7am and will only close at 10pm – but thousands ofBrits were seen getting an early vote in during rush hour.
If turnout is confirmed to be the highest in decades, Boris’s lead in the polls could tighten in the coming hours.
In past elections, high turnouts usually suggest Labour has succeeded in mobilising its younger and working class voters, who have in the past have failed to head to the polls.
Astonishing pictures of snaking queues – particularly in South London – allayed fears of a low turnout in the first Decemberelection in nearly 100 years.
Voters in Wandsworth said they had to wait up to 45 minutes to vote – claiming it had taken less than five minutes during the morning rush hour in the last five elections.
