Referenda - information and advice

What is a referendum?

The purpose of a referendum is to establish a public response to one or more questions. 

There have been two UK-wide referenda:

  • on 5 May 2011 - to decide the UK Parliamentary voting system

and

  • in 1975 - to decide whether or not the UK should remain a member of the European Community.

All eligible voters can take part in a referendum, as long as they are included in the Register of Electors at the time of the referendum.
