The extension on the deadline to register to vote in the EU Referendum has been welcomed by Eastbourne’s MP.
A decision was made by the Government yesterday (8 June) to give people until midnight tonight to register, after the system crashed on Tuesday night, meaning thousands lost out.
Caroline Ansell said, “Anything that enables more people to vote in this referendum is a good thing even though it's a shame that the technology did not work.”
You can register to vote here. The referendum takes place on Thursday 23 June.
