You can’t miss it – campaign launches ahead of EU referendum

Published Friday, 20 May 2016

The EU referendum is fast approaching, so the London Borough of Bromley is urging residents to look out for the Electoral Commission’s information booklet being delivered in the coming weeks.

The referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union will take place on Thursday 23 June 2016.

The booklet, which will be delivered to every household across the UK contains important information for voters on the referendum, how to register to vote and how to cast your vote.

Alongside delivery of the information guide, the Electoral Commission has launched its national voter registration campaign to remind people to register by the deadline of Tuesday 7 June.

Advertising will appear across TV, radio and online on demand video services encouraging viewers to make sure they don’t miss the information booklet.

Residents are encouraged to act now if they’re not already registered to vote.

The message is simple: you can’t vote if you’re not registered by Tuesday 7 June. It’s easy to register and only takes a few minutes online. Those already registered to vote do not need to register again for the EU referendum.

Those people who are likely to be away on the day and will be unable to get to the polling station can apply for a postal vote (by 8 June) or a proxy vote (by 15 June). More information for voters is available at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
