Voting in today’s EU referendum is “steady” in South Holland, according to the district council.

Moments ago a district council spokesman told us: “All of the polling stations in South Holland have received a steady number of voters since opening at 7am this morning.”

People across South Holland are today (Thursday) voting in the EU referendum.

The choice is a simple one: should the UK remain in the EU or leave?

Spalding Guardian reporters spoke to voters at The Vista polling station in Spalding earlier today

Those casting their vote preferred not to have their names published.

The people who disclosed which way they were voting were happy to share their reasons.

One “leave” voter mentioned how “the town has changed beyond recognition” and that it wasn’t safe anymore. 
Whereas a “remain” voter spoke about the security the EU offers us economically and that it was too much of a risk to leave.

• Polling stations open until 10pm today.

A spokesperson for SHDC said: “All of the polling stations in South Holland have received a steady number of voters since opening at 7am this morning.”
