Redbridge going to the polls in referendum vote
Redbridge is going to the polls today to have its say on whether the country should adopt a new voting system.
Polling stations will be open for the referendum vote from 7am-10pm.
Residents will be asked whether the country should keep the first past the post system, where voters choose their preferred candidate, or the alternative vote system, where candidates are listed in order of preference.
The ballot boxes will be verified at Redbridge Town Hall, High Road, Ilford, tonight, with the counting of the ballot papers taking place on Friday afternoon.
Eighteen wards across Epping Forest District Council are holding district council elections, including the Buckhurst Hill West ward.
