Make sure you’re reg­is­tered for EU vote

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

WITH the EU ref­er­en­dum fast ap­proach­ing, Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil and South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil are urg­ing res­i­dents to make sure they are reg­is­tered to vote by mid­night on the June 7 dead­line, and to check the Elec­toral Com­mis­sion’s vot­ing guide for ad­vice on how to take part.

The ref­er­en­dum on the UK’s mem­ber­ship of the Euro­pean Union will take place on Thurs­day, June 23.

The vot­ing guide, con­tain­ing im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion for vot­ers on how to reg­is­ter to vote, is be­ing de­liv­ered to house­holds, and the coun­cils are also dis­tribut­ing it via li­braries, parish coun­cils and lo­cal com­mu­nity groups to en­sure it reaches as many res­i­dents as pos­si­ble.

Lo­cal count­ing of­fi­cer for Chiltern and South Bucks Bob Smith said: “There is a great deal of in­ter­est in the EU Ref­er­en­dum and we want to make sure that ev­ery­one who is el­i­gi­ble to take part, is able to do so.

The vot­ing guide con­tains all the in­for­ma­tion needed to en­sure ev­ery­one el­i­gi­ble can take part on the June 23 ref­er­en­dum.

“Don’t for­get that you won’t be able to have a say if you aren’t reg­is­tered to vote by mid­night on the June 7, so I’d en­cour­age any­one not al­ready reg­is­tered to do it on­line now at www.gov.uk/ reg­is­ter-to-vote. And if you have a hol­i­day booked for the June 23, re­mem­ber you can al­ways do a postal vote but you’ll need to ap­ply by 5pm on June 8 to do so.”

Vot­ers who are al­ready reg­is­tered to vote are re­minded that they do not need to reg­is­ter again. Any­one al­ready reg­is­tered will have re­ceived a poll card by May 25.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion is avail­able at www.chiltern. gov.uk/eu, www. south­bucks.gov.uk/reg­is­ter.
