Multiple reports are emerging that EU citizens have been sent polling cards despite not having a vote in the referendum. Jakub Pawlowski, a Polish citizen living in Kingston, Surrey, tells Guido:

“I have been living in UK since 2006 but never applied for British citizenship. I recently bought a house and in December 2015, right after completion, filled the form to get registered on electoral roll. I have selected there that I’m a Polish citizen. I could therefore vote in London mayoral elections this month, however recently I got a polling card for the upcoming referendum on EU membership.”

Non-British EU citizens do not have a vote in the referendum…

Kingston council told Jakub that he was erroneously in their database as a British citizen. But this appears to be a widespread problem:

Another stunning success for the Electoral Commission…
