With the EU referendum fast approaching, Kirklees Council is urging residents to look out for the Electoral Commission’s information booklet being delivered in the coming weeks.

The referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union will take place on Thursday June 23.

The booklet, which will be delivered to every household across the UK over the next week, contains important information for voters on the referendum as well as how to register and cast your vote.

Alongside delivery of the information guide, the Electoral Commission has launched its national voter registration campaign to remind people to register by the deadline of Tuesday June 7.

Advertising will appear across TV, radio and online on demand video services encouraging viewers to make sure they don’t miss the information booklet.

Ben Brook, head of performance and english regional teams at the Electoral Commission, said: “Keep an eye out for our information booklet which is being delivered to homes across the UK.

“It contains really important information on how to take part in this historic event.

“We want to make sure that everyone who is eligible to take part, is able to.

“Our advice is to plan in advance where you will be on polling day.”

More information for voters is available at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk.
