South Ayrshire voters are being reminded to make sure their vote counts in the EU Referendum on 23 June.

There are just a few days until the referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union.

There are three ways to vote in the referendum: In person, at your polling place, which is detailed on your poll card. All 100 polling stations in South Ayrshire will be open from 7am until 10pm on 23 June.

By post – as long as you have registered for a postal vote. Your vote must be received by 10pm on 23 June 2016 or it won’t be counted. If you leave it too late to post your vote back, you can hand your ballot paper and postal voting statement in to any polling place in South Ayrshire before they close at 10pm on polling day.

By proxy – where you trust someone else to cast your vote on your behalf. You must have registered to do this.

There are currently more than 88,100 people registered to vote in the EU Referendum across South Ayrshire.
