Referendum facts and figures

The Welsh Assembly referendum, Wales, referendum, Assembly

While we’re waiting for the first results which are expected late morning, here are some facts and figures from the Electoral Commission.

2,289,042 people were eligible to vote in this referendum. Out of that number, 372,586 people registered to vote by post.

For those of us who voted in person, there were 2,506 polling stations and 5,480 polling station staff.

Today’s focus will be on just 23 people – the 22 Counting Officers in charge of counting the votes in each council area and 1 Chief Counting Officer, Jenny Watson.

She’ll be the woman declaring the results officially in the Senedd in Cardiff Bay.
