Deadline to register to vote in EU referendum

Tomorrow, Tuesday June 7 is your last chance to register to vote before the EU referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union on Thursday June 23.

You can vote in the referendum if you are registered to vote in the UK, are 18 or over on 23 June 2016 and are:

* A British or Irish citizen living in the UK, or

* A Commonwealth citizen living in the UK who has leave to remain in the UK or who does not require leave to remain in the UK

* A British citizen living overseas who has been registered to vote in the UK in the last 15 years

* An Irish citizen living overseas who was born in Northern Ireland and who has been registered to vote in Northern Ireland in the last 15 years

If you are an EU citizen you are not eligible to vote in the EU Referendum, unless you meet the criteria above.

If you want to have your say at the EU Referendum, you must be registered to vote.

In England, Scotland or Wales, you can register to vote online anytime at gov.uk/register-to-vote.

Anyone who was already registered to vote (or recently registered) before the April 18 deadline for the elections taking place across the UK on May 5 will also be registered to vote at the EU Referendum and will be able to cast their vote. You do not need to re-register.

If your circumstances changed, for example you moved home between your last registration and the EU Referendum registration deadline today, June 7, then you will need to re-register at your new property.
