Eu Referendum – what you need to know

The EU referendum is on Thursday 23rd June. We are keen to encourage all women to vote but we do appreciate that making your mind up about it can be tough.

To help you choose which way to vote, and to encourage more women to vote, the Fawcett society has a debate and speeches from both sides available on their website here: http://www.fawcettsociety.org.uk/our-work/campaigns/the-eu-referendum/

You can also find more information on the referendum through the House of Commons and House of Lords Library (politically impartial) here: http://www.parliament.uk/eu-referendum. We’ll add to this page as we find more information that may help you.

See more links below to websites making the case both ways.

You can vote if you are:

  • 18 or over
  • A British or Irish citizen living in the UK
  • A Commonwealth citizen living in the UK who has leave to remain in the UK or who does not require leave to remain in the UK. Go to http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk to see if you can vote.
