Voting in the European Union Referendum – what you need to know
The EU Referendum on Thursday 23 June is to decide whether the UK will remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union
Register to vote
To vote you must register by 7 June. To register to vote visit gov.uk/register-to-vote.
Registering to vote is quick and easy. You just need your National Insurance number, date of birth and address.
If you registered to vote in the Police and Crime Commissioner election in May you do not have to re-register – as long you haven’t moved home since.
We are now sending out poll cards to people who have registered to vote. This will tell you where you need to go to vote on Thursday 23 June.
- If you were registered to vote by 3 May 2016 then you should receive your poll card by 25 May – call us if you don’t
- If you registered to vote after 3 May then you should receive it by 13 June.
Vote by post
