How will the count take place? The Count Procedure.
The polling takes place from 7 am to 10 pm on June 23. It will be better to cast you vote early as there is going to more turnout than the last year’s general elections as per the forecast of the Electoral Commission.
However, if you can’t cast vote as early as possible, then also you will be allowed to cast it at 10 pm queues. With the closing of the polls, thousands of sealed ballot boxes will be collected from the polling stations and transferred to one of the 382 counting venues across the nation.EU Referendum Results 2016
Why are the results so late?
It is so because the polling is to be conducted in the UK by dividing it into 382 areas. First of all, the announcement will be made; then only the counting will be started. Then, the ballot boxes will be transported to 12 electoral regions. Then, they will announce the results.
This time, it will be very different from a general election. It will be a big event because every single vote in the nation will be counted. In general elections, an MP needs to win the majority in the constituency to win the seat. But, here, in this case, the final declaration of the result will be announced after collecting all the local results.
