Government has extended voting registration to midnight 9th June

The UK Government has today announced that it will be extending the deadline to register to vote at the EU referendum to midnight 9th June.

So if you have yet to register, you still have chance to register and take part in the most important vote this County has had in a very, very long time. However, if you are already registered, please please do not try to re-register. As you are already eligible to vote and all you are doing is creating more work for Electoral Services.

The Electoral Commission have released a statement in response to the announcement.

    I am amazed at the volume of extra people that have registered for this referendum. It makes me wonder why they did not want to be on the register of electors list in the first place! after all, although I would not condone it, one does not have to vote in any election just because they are registered, so do some of them have another reason for not having been registered!
