Warnings that people will be ineligible to have their say in the EU Referendum unless they register to vote are misleading, a council has said.

But Lincoln Council said the suggestion was incorrect.
“It has come to our attention that a social media post, which has gone viral across the UK, has wrongly advised people they will have to re-register to vote in the EU Referendum. “This is not the case. “If you are already on the electoral roll, all you need to do is turn up at the polling station and vote on 23 June.”
