Register To Vote: EU Referendum

Today (7th June 2016) is the last day that you can register to vote for the EU Referendum – you have until midnight tonight to register and it really doesn’t take very long to do so.

Just a quick reminder: you need to be on the electoral register to vote in elections and referendums.  That means that if you do want to vote on the 23rd June in the EU Referendum then you need to be on the electoral register and click the link below and register by midnight tonight.

You will not have been able to avoid the press surrounding the EU referendum over the last few weeks and months, and it is important that you vote, but you also make an informed decision, and that you are aware of the ramifications surrounding remaining or leaving the EU.

Head on over to https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote and click the button towards the bottom of the text, they estimate that it takes roughly 5 minutes to register.

You can use this button to register to vote, but also to:

  1. update your name, address or other details on the electoral register
  2. change your voting preferences, eg to vote in person or by post
  3. change whether you are on the open register

The website states that you may need your National Insurance number, or your passport (if you are a British citizen living abroad)

Quick note: you do not need to register again in order to vote in the EU referendum if you live in the UK and both of the following apply:

  1. you were registered to vote in the May 2016 elections or the 2015 General Election
  2. you still live at the same address

Please make it a priority today to register (if you are eligible to do so) today so that you can have your say in a few weeks.
