Electoral Commission leaflet, factchecked


The Electoral Commission’s EU Referendum Voting Guide has been delivered to households this week. When political campaigners make claims in a leaflet published by the Electoral Commission, voters might expect the content to be accurate – but is it?

Each campaign gets one page to make their case. Fullfact checked their claims on immigration, law, trade, and more. Click the link to go straight to the claim you care about most.

Argument to stay in EU:

Better IN on prices?

Better IN on trade?

Better IN on jobs?

Better IN on economy?

Better IN on cross-border crime?

Argument to leave the EU:

Better OUT of EU expansion?

Better OUT on trade?

Better OUT on immigration?

Better OUT with no EU membership fee?

Better OUT of EU law?

None of the information published is intended to tell you how you should vote.  It merely provides the facts on what may be important issues so you can make up your own mind.

We believe it’s better to make up your own mind based on facts rather than propaganda.

The EU referendum and the Irish border

The UK currently has one land border: the one that divides Northern Ireland from the Republic of Ireland. The border used to be subject to customs and security checks, but nowadays people can pretty much move freely across it.

What would happen to this border if the UK left the EU? The answer is nobody can be sure. It would depend on the arrangements that the UK worked out for EU trade and immigration. Read more.
