Voting in the EU referendum
Friday 6 May 2016
Brandon Trust has produced a video guide to the EU referendum to encourage everybody to take the opportunity to vote.
People who receive support from Brandon asked for more information about the debate and voting, so our Involvement team set to work on making an accessible film, aiming to outline the key arguments and the process from joining the voting register, to putting a cross in the box.
The language used when discussing referendums is rarely accessible so in the video, Beth Richards, Brandon’s Involvement Assistant, explains the important terms.
On 23 June, 2016, the UK will decide if it wants to remain in the EU. Every British and Irish citizen, over 18-years-old and living in the UK, has the right to vote on it. We want everyone to understand their voting rights and use the support available to make voting possible.
The deadline to register to vote in the EU referendum is Tuesday, 7 June, 2016, so now is the time to watch the video, register to vote, and decide whether you want to stay or leave.
