EU referendum: make sure your voice is heard

The upcoming EU referendum is now just over a month away and I would encourage everyone who is eligible to vote to register before the deadline on 7 June.

On 23 June we will all get the chance to decide whether the UK should remain a member of the European Union or leave, and as this is a once in a generation chance to vote on the issue it is crucial that every voice is heard.

The referendum will work like a normal UK parliamentary election and it is important to note that if you are already on the electoral roll, you do not need to register again. Likewise if for whatever reason you require a postal or proxy vote then please make sure to sign up for one.

For more information please read this useful EU Referendum Voting Guide that has been put together by the Electoral Commission. A physical copy of the guide will also be sent to every UK household.
