Following reports of incorrect information being shared through social media, Epping Forest District Council’s Electoral Services team have been inundated with enquiries from residents asking to register for the EU Referendum on 23 June 2016, when they are already registered.

A Council spokesperson said: “You do not need to register for the EU Referendum if you have already received a poll card for the upcoming Police Crime Commissioner (PCC) and Local Elections on 5 May 2016. If you are on the Electoral Register you will be included in all Elections and Referendums.

“You only need to register for the EU Referendum if you have moved after 18 April 2016, in which case you need to do so by Tuesday 7 June 2016”
