Polls Open for the EU Referendum

After a long debate, polls open at 7am for the EU referendum, and close at 10pm [1].

The question on the ballot paper is:

Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?

It is a referendum, so all votes are counted equally, and it is not decided through the higher number of counting districts or constituencies.

Whichever side has the highest number of votes will win.
