EU referendum voter registration deadline extended

The deadline for voter registration in the EU referendum is to be extended until midnight tomorrow, the Government has announced.

Cabinet Office minister Lord Bridges of Headley said the extra time would allow people who had not yet registered time to "get the message that registration is still open and get themselves registered".

The move came after the registration deadline for people wishing to vote in the June 23 poll passed at midnight but a website crash potentially denied thousands the chance to take part.
