One third of Redbridge voters turn out for referendum vote
About one third of Redbridge voters had their say in yesterday’s alternative vote referendum.
Counting will begin at 4pm today in Redbridge Town Hall, as voters decide whether to ditch the first past the post voting system for the alternative vote, where candidates are listed in order of preference.
The ballot boxers were verified by counters at the town hall last night.
The turnout, announced at about 1.30am this morning in the town hall, was 32.7 per cent, or 62,009 individual votes.
It is not yet known how that compares with other similar constituencies.
