EU referendum: registration deadline extended to midnight Thu 9 June

canstockphoto25616243optThe Government has confirmed that the registration deadline in order to vote in the EU referendum is being extended by 48 hours to MIDNIGHT (2359 hours BST) this THURSDAY 9TH JUNE. Visit aboutmyvote.co.ukaboutmyvote.co.uk now to register online in good time.

You don't need to register again if you are already registered, which you are if you received a polling card or postal vote for the elections across the country on 11th May, and haven't changed your address since then.

The deadline extension has been agreed by the Government following a computer glitch on Tuesday night, when thousands of people were unable to register online due to unprecedented demand.

The extension requires legislation to make it legal, but it was clear from discussion in Parliament today that such a measure would have wide cross-party support.
