All you need to know to cast your vote in tomorrow’s EU referendum

22 June 2016

South Cambridgeshire voters are being reminded that polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm tomorrow (Thursday 23 June) for them to cast their vote in the EU Referendum.

Ballot papers ask the question “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?”.

Voters are also advised:

  • you don’t need your poll card with you to be able to vote
  • if you haven’t returned your postal vote, completed and sealed voting packs can be dropped off at your polling station between 7am and 10pm
  • South Cambridgeshire's polling stations are at the same location they were on 5 May, with two exceptions
  • Grantchester polling station has moved from the Reading Room on the High Street to Grantchester Communal Centre, Tabrum Close, CB3 9NW
  • Milton polling station has moved from the Bowls Pavilion on Coles Road to Milton Community Centre, Coles Road, CB24 6BL
  • you can only cast your vote at the polling station your home address is registered under – the address is on your poll card, or you can find it online via the link at www.scambs.gov.uk/elections
  • if voters have a disability, polling station staff are able to offer a range of help from large print ballot papers to refer to, to helping voters mark their ballot paper
  • applications for an emergency proxy – where someone you trust votes on your behalf – may only be made on the grounds of disability or for work/service reasons, and under certain legally outlined circumstances, until 5pm on Thursday 23 June. Please email elections@scambs.gov.uk or phone 03450 455 214

Jean Hunter, chief executive and counting officer at South Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “Staff at our 120 polling stations will be ready and willing to help voters tomorrow. There may be queues at busy times, so please do consider heading to your polling station earlier rather than later. The polls close at 10pm, but as long as you are in the queue before then, you’ll be able to cast your vote.”
