    Don't forget this isn't a parliamentary election with First Past The Post when your vote is only important in marginal constituencies.

    Today we are voting in a Referendum

    EVERY VOTE COUNTS

    They are all tallied across the UK and whichever side has the highest total wins. It's quite a simple process.

    If you have already decided which way to vote - then great. Go and vote.

    If you haven't made up your mind yet. Go and vote (and give some thought before you put that X on your ballot.)

    The important thing today is to VOTE!

    I've voted to leave the EU! Make sure you vote in pen though as I can't help but distrust the government: why do they make you vote in pencil?

    Pencils are cheaper than pens, but you can use a pen if you want.

    There's no conspiracy.

    Yes I know about the cost of pencils but as much as people insist there isn't a 'conspiracy' [as you call it] I think it would be very easy to tamper with the vote...

    Go on try it. See what happens

    The absence of a conspiracy is the reason why people are saying there isn't a conspiracy.

    Haha! I've already voted No but seriously I don't think it's necessarily a conspiracy, I just distrust the current government

    By the way, I note from your avatar you like David Bowie.

    We, unfortunately, don't know his view of the referendum but we do have his close collaborator, Brian Eno.
