EU Referendum: Voter registration closes today!

Bobby Rae June 7, 2016

Voter registration for the EU referendum closes at midnight tonight – so don’t forget to do it!

Whatever side you come down on, leave, remain or even if you’re not sure yet, don’t forget to make sure you have your voice heard on June 23.

At midnight tonight (June 7), registration – for what could be one of the biggest decision the country makes for the next decade – will close. It only takes five minutes to register and all you need is your national insurance number (and passport if you are abroad).

Only British, Irish and Commonwealth Citizens living in the UK over the age of 18 can vote. As well as those who live abroad but have been on the register at some point over the last 15 years.

The registration process will also let you decide if you want to vote in person or by post, so no need to worry if you go on holiday.

The Electoral Commission has said that 1.65 million people have applied to vote since a campaign last month sought to encourage new voters to have a say.

PinkNews believes that you should be fully informed of the LGBT argument when deciding to vote for staying or leaving the EU.

Previously, former London Mayor, Boris Johnson, has said that LGBT protections will be even stronger in the event of a Brexit. However, fellow Tory and Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, blasted him and other Brexiters as “misguided” over this idea.

Recent opinions have suggested a growing support for a leave vote, but the result is still to close to call.
