The EU referendum is approaching and those who have yet to register, have to so by Tuesday 7 June.
Voters across the North East can also check the Electoral Commission’s voting guide for advice on how to take part.
There are nearly two million people on the region’s electoral registers. The referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union is on Thursday 23 June 2016.
The voting guide, which was delivered to every UK household over recent weeks, contains important information on how to register to vote, how to cast your vote, and arguments from the lead campaigners for the ‘Remain’ and ‘Leave’ side.
Sue Stanhope, the North East’s Regional Counting Officer, said: “Now that voters in all 12 North East local authorities have received the voting guide from the Electoral Commission, we hope people feel confident about taking part in the referendum on 23 June.”
“Anyone that hasn’t received a copy can view it online at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk.”
“Don’t forget that you won’t be able to have a say if you haven’t registered to vote by the 7 June deadline, so I’d encourage everyone to get online now and register at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote”
Voters that are already registered to vote are being reminded that they do NOT need to register again for the EU Referendum on 23 June.
