Referendums and Polls

A referendum or poll paper shows one or more questions that require a 'Yes' or 'No' answer.

You must write the word 'Yes' or 'No' in the square next to the question.

The number of 'Yes' and 'No' votes are counted to achieve a result.

If there is more than one question on the referendum or poll paper, the papers are sorted and counted for each question.

Voting on a referendum question is compulsory whereas voting on a poll question is not.
