Voting began on Thursday in Catalonia in a closely watched and decisive election.

Catalonians are heading to voting stations to choose between parties in favor and against staying in Spain, which will mark a turning point in the region.

The election, called by the Spanish government, comes two months after a political turmoil in the region caused multiple demonstrations calling for the independence of Catalonia and others demanding it stays a semi-autonomous part of Spain
All indications are that the result will be very close.
