The British are choosing their future with or without European membership
On Thursday, June 23, the UK will go the polls in the referendum to decide whether the country stays with the EU or goes for Brexit, BBC reports.
The referendum takes place on June 23, between 07:00 and 22:00. The voters will be asked to answer the following question: "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?" Whichever side gets more than half of all votes cast is considered to have won.
There will be 382 counting areas - 380 local authorities across England, Scotland and Wales and one in Northern Ireland, and one in Gibraltar.
The official declaration will be made at Manchester Town Hall. It is difficult to predict when a final total will be declared, but the level of turnout and how close the result is will have a bearing on time.
