Bermondsey’s Barnham Street and Shand Street to close on June 23 to help delivery of ballot boxes to Southwark Council during EU Referendum

Two Bermondsey roads will close for three hours on Thursday June 23 to help “facilitate” the referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union.

Both Barnham Street and Shand Street near Southwark Council on Tooley Street will shut to traffic from 9pm to 11:59pm to ensure the delivery of ballot boxes goes undisturbed.

The council’s offices on Tooley Street will be responsible for tallying up Southwark’s votes on the night as the world waits to hear what the UK’s future position in the EU will be.

Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on June 23 for people to either vote to “Remain” or “Leave” the European Union.

  1. EU referendum – British Citizens living outside the UK entitled to vote ? Beware, My vote has been totally blocked !

    As a British Citizen living outside the UK, “Officially” I meet all eligibility criteria to register and vote.
    However, when attempting to register and vote they say my current address which is outside the UK & outside the EU is not eligible – as they can’t find my address! Really ! Thus I simply cannot vote. Is there an assumption that I will vote to leave because I live outside the EU ? you decide. Originally I wanted to vote to Remain. However I now wish to change my vote to LEAVE, due to the vote blocking I have experienced. I also know as a fact that I am not the only “Officially Eligible” voter where I live, experiencing the same issue !

    This is all wrong. God knows what life is going to be like if the UK population, those who actually can vote that
    is, votes to Remain. How totally corrupt and undemocratic ! I guess it is true what “the Brexit video” on YOUTUBE says regarding loss of Sovereignty, Freedom, Democracy & Big Brother EU. My own experience is very worrying and provides direct proof.

    Please think very carefully how you will vote, I am NOT ALLOWED to vote ! Please consider voting LEAVE, as I cannot – because my choice of being able to vote has already been taken away !
