You vote by placing an X in the box beside YES or NO on each ballot paper.

Voters are warned that writing anything else on the ballot paper could have it deemed a spoiled ballot paper.

You are also warned that taking selfies or photographs inside the polling station, including of your ballot papers is against the law, as is the wearing or carrying of any campaign material.

Today polling stations will close at 10pm tonight, the ballot boxes will be sealed, transported and stored securely before counting gets underway at 9 tomorrow morning.
