Have you received your voting guide? – You can’t miss it!
With the EU referendum fast approaching, Flintshire County Council is reminding
residents who are not registered to vote to do so by 7 June.
The referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union will take place on
Thursday 23 June.
The Electoral Commissions voting guide, which was delivered to every UK
household over the past week, contains important information for voters on how
to register to vote, how to cast your vote, and arguments from the lead
campaigners for the ‘Remain’ and ‘Leave’ side.
Colin Everett, Regional Counting Officer for Wales said,
“Now that voters in Flintshire have received the voting guide from the
Electoral Commission, voters should be informed and prepared to take part in
the referendum on 23 June. Anyone that hasn’t received a copy can view it
online at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
For anyone who is not yet registered go online atwww.gov.uk/register-to-vote”.
Voters already registered do not need to register again for the EU Referendum.
Rhydian Thomas, Head of the Electoral Commission in Wales said:
“The referendum on 23 June is an opportunity for people to have their say on
one of the key political issues of our time.
“Voters have told us that they want accessible and impartial information so
that they feel they can make an informed decision at the ballot box. We have
sent our guide to every household across the UK so that as many people as
possible feel confident about casting their vote on 23 June”.
The guide is also available online in Welsh and English, and has been produced
in a range of different languages and accessible formats.
