The UK government will hold the referendum on whether or not Britain on the 23 June this year. There has been much speculation in the past regarding the date, however an earlier report by The Times points to Downing Street’s preferred date.
Prime Minister David Cameron is the only thing left standing in the way, as he is currently attempting to negotiate Britain’s position within the EU. The Prime Minister’s aim will be to secure an agreement with his demands before he can call for the referendum.
June has been said to be the best time for such an event since July and August are generally considered to be bad dates for voting since a lot of people are away on holiday. The winter periods are no better as shorter days mean a smaller turnout at the ballot boxes.
