LONDON, June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Vote England and Vote Scotland voting websites are reporting a North South divide in their latest poll on the EU Referendum. Both websites are secure voting platforms with electronic checks to prevent users voting more than once per poll. Only those on the electoral roll may vote.
Martyn Greene, spokesperson;
"As well as a cumulative percentage of all votes cast, the websites will also report the daily trend. This will allow both sides to see within 24hrs how the electorate is reacting, a first for the polling industry."
High tech internet polls have the ability to overcome the need for weighting by the sheer volume of numbers polled. Our voting platforms already have ten thousand registered users and we will increase this by focusing on controversial and topical subjects. Both websites are designed to handle everyone on the electoral roll voting within a 48 hour period without crashing.
Returns so far show England voting heavily for Leave with Scotland voting for Remain. The final result will be available immediately on conclusion of the referendum and the results can be broken down by age, gender and location.
"These platforms are much more than a new way of conducting opinion polls, they will herald a new type of government. All political parties now speak about devolving more power to a local level and internet voting is the tool to make this happen."
Both platforms are part of the Free Parliament Campaign which campaigns for a number of parliamentary and electoral reforms including Free Votes in the House of Commons and MP Recall.
