Polling station at St Nicholas Church Hall, Gosforth
Part of the church hall at St Nicholoas Parish Church in Gosforth is used as a polling station for the casting of votes.

On this occasion it was the venue for local people to cast their votes in the national referendum held on the 23rd June 2016 to answer the question as to whether the UK should remain in, or leave the European Union. The polling station was open from 7am (2 minutes before I cast my vote) until 10pm for local residents to have their say.

Newcastle was the 1st major city to declare how residents had voted. This happened just two hours after the polls closed. Though it was by a very small margin, Newcastle was one of only a small number of council areas in England where the majority of people voted to remain in the EU. Nationally the result of the referendum was a slight majority in favour of leaving the EU, by a majority of 52% to 48%.
