In Greece -- preparations are underway at polling stations across the country ahead of Sunday's referendum vote. The big question --- will Greece accept or reject the tough bailout conditions international creditors are demanding in order to keep the country afloat. The latest polls show voters nearly split on the issue --- those favoring a bailout have a microscopic lead --- so small in fact that pollsters say it's too close to call. The stakes couldn't be higher --- a "no" vote on Sunday could expedite the cash-strapped country's exit from the eurozone --- a historic first for the euro. That scenario would force Greece to come up with its own highly devalued currency. Whether Greeks vote Yes or No to a bailout --- Sunday's vote will be closely watched worldwide.
