    Not a debate, just a straightforward poll.

    It is actually illegal to say who you voted for whilst the polls are open :)

    No it isn't - there are rules in place to try and prevent Big Media from influencing a vote in progress, but and individual can be open about how they voted - provided they are not under duress when they share the information. You aren't allowed to reveal how someone else voted, though.

    Cast my vote this morning. Won't say for who, but I will say I ruled out all parties who promised to act like playground bullies in the EU in retaliation for our own government stuffing up Brexit - can't be having with that level of immaturity! So definitely not Tory, UKIP or the Brexit Party :D

    We will not be voting as they couldn't manage to get our polling cards to us in time.

    You don't need a polling card to vote, I've forgotten to take mine more than once!

    Not voting, I haven't done enough research into who will be the person sitting there for each party to vote with good conscience.

    Also I just can't be bothered and need to practice my golf at the driving range

    Comment from a friend of mine:

    'I wonder how the leave voters are enjoying voting, in such a democratic way, for the undemocratic EU....?'

    As for people not being eligible to vote because they weren’t registered in time or other various reasons such as not de-registering in their previous eu country of residence, I believe the rules and regulations will have been set by the eu and readily available online if people were that bothered and could have been done months ago so as not to miss out on their voting rights ;)

    I didn’t say they couldn’t be bothered.

    I said “if they were that bothered”.

    We all knew the EU elections were coming. They’re held every five years. I would have registered to vote as soon as I settled/became a citizen if it were that important to me.
