EU Referendum

Next Elections

Type of Election Date
EU Referendum 23 June 2016


European Union Referendum

The European Union Referendum Act 2015 provides for a referendum to be held on the UK's membership of the European Union (EU).

The referendum question will be: "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?"

The date of the referendum has been proposed to take place on Thursday 23 June 2016

Who will be able to vote?

  • British, Irish and Commonwealth citizens over 18 who are resident in the UK
  • UK nationals who have lived overseas for less than 15 years and who were registered as electors before moving abroad
  • Members of the House of Lords
  • Commonwealth citizens in Gibraltar will also be eligible, unlike in a general election.

Please note that the voting age for this referendum is restricted to those eligible electors aged 18 or over on the date of the poll. Legislation to allow 16 year olds to vote in Scottish Local Government elections does not apply to this referendum.

Who is not eligible to vote?

  • Those aged 17 years of age or younger on date of the poll
  • Citizens from EU countries (apart from Ireland, Malta and Cyprus) will not get a vote.

Further details including deadline dates for registration and submitting a new postal or proxy vote will be published upon instruction from the Chief Counting Officer for the EU Referendum.

Registration Deadline

To make sure you are registered to vote in this election your application must be submitted to the Electoral Registration Officer by Tuesday 7 June 2016.

Postal and Proxy Votes

The last day to apply for a new postal or postal proxy vote, or to change or cancel an existing postal or proxy vote, for the EU Referendum is 5pm on Wednesday 8 June 2016.

The date on which you receive your postal vote will depend on the date you apply for your postal vote. If you have an existing postal vote your postal voting pack will be sent out around 2 June 2016. If you wait until the last minute to apply for a postal vote your pack will not arrive until nearer the day of the election.

Once you've have received your postal pack, read the enclosed instructions, mark your vote on the ballot papers, complete the postal voting statement and put these in the envelopes provided making sure you send your completed pack back as soon as possible and by no later than 10pm on Thursday 23 June. If it arrives later than this your vote won't be counted.

Please note that postal vote applications which will require the postal ballot pack to be delivered to an overseas address should be made as early as possible. An early post of postal vote ballot packs to Overseas electors will be sent out around 27 May 2016.

Where applications are made close to the cut off deadline (Wednesday 8 June 2016), the delivery date of the postal ballot pack will depend upon the level of service delivery in that country and, in some instances, it is possible that the postal ballot pack may not be delivered in sufficient time for it to be counted at the election.

The last day to apply for a new proxy vote for the EU Referendum is 5pm on Wednesday 15 June 2016.

Emergency proxies

Emergency proxies may be appointed for this referendum in all of the following circumstances

  • in the case of a disability (whether a medical condition, illness or otherwise) arising after the deadline for ordinary proxy applications (i.e. 5pm on the sixth working day before the poll (5pm on Wednesday 15 June 2016))
  • if the person is a mental health patient detained under civil powers (i.e. those who are not detained offenders)
  • if a person's occupation, service or employment means that they cannot go to the polling station in person and they became aware of this fact after the deadline for ordinary proxy applications (i.e. 5pm on the sixth working day before the poll (5pm on Wednesday 15 June 2016))
