Referendum 8th March 2024

The deadline to register and update your details for the 8th March 2024 Referendum for standard voting is 20 February 2024, and the deadline to register for a postal vote is 12 February 2024.

Briefing on Referendum

Four national Traveller organisations have also collaborated on a joint briefing document on the upcoming Referendum. You can find the document here, and the Referendums on Family and Care ‘current’ and ‘proposed’ wording here.

The briefing documents outlines the proposed amendments, explains the motivation for the amendments and outlines the impact of voting ‘yes’ or voting ‘no’.

A Traveller Vote = A Traveller Voice.
