The Electoral Commission has reported receiving and processing nearly quarter of a million referendum votes per day on Wednesday and Thursday this week. Those were the first two day big days allowing time for the ballots to there through the post.
With smaller numbers getting in early on Monday and Tuesday, too, 530,000 votes are in so far – an impressive 17.50% turn out already. That’s far better than you would expect from a council postal ballot at this stage. Now, let’s get the rest in.
And if you haven’t got your ballot, tell the Electoral Commission, and get a new one.
