On Thursday June 23 the United Kingdom has the opportunity to vote in the EU Referendum. If you are intending to vote make sure you know what to expect and what to do on the day.
Polling stations across the district will be open from 7am until 10pm on Thursday. If you are voting in person, the address of your polling station is printed on your polling card. You do not need to bring your polling card with you to vote.
On entering a polling station there will be polling officers who will tick your name and address off their list of registered local voters. You will be handed a ballot paper to take with you into a voting booth where you can vote in private.
The question on the ballot paper will be: ‘Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?’. Your options for the vote will be: ‘Remain a member of the European Union’ or ‘Leave the European Union’.
When you have voted, you will leave the booth with your ballot paper and place it in the sealed ballot box.
Postal voters need to ensure their postal ballot is received by North Norfolk District Council’s Electoral Services team by 10pm on June 23. If you have not left enough time to ensure this happens, you can hand your postal ballot in at any polling station in the North Norfolk district during the opening times on Thursday.
Please be aware no photos should be taken inside the polling station.
Across North Norfolk district…
- there are 83,057 eligible voters;
- 130 polling stations will be open;
- and 295 polling station staff will be on duty.
