Daventry District Council is reminding voters in the district what they need to know to have their say in the EU Referendum this Thursday, June 23.
Daventry District Council is organising and staging the referendum for voters living in the district. Voters will be asked ‘Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?’
Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm and residents should have received a card with details of their local polling station. They can check their polling station online by inputting their postcode at http://mapping.daventrydc.gov.uk.
When voting at a polling station, it is helpful for people to take their polling card with them, but if they don’t have it they can still vote. The only exception to this rule is anonymous electors, who must present their poll cards in order to vote.
Polling station staff will give people ballot papers for the EU Referendum, providing they arrive at the polling station before 10pm.
People are reminded they must not take photographs inside polling stations.
Postal votes must be received by the Returning Officer by 10pm on Thursday, June 23. Anyone who has left it too late to post can drop it off at their polling station or at Daventry District Council, Lodge Road, Daventry, NN11 4FP.
Counting of the votes will take place overnight and a result for Daventry district will be announced in the early hours. A national result is expected at around 7am on Friday.
