Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union? The final result was announced on Friday 24 June 2016 at 07:20 BST by then-Electoral Commission Chairwoman Jenny Watson at Manchester Town Hall after all 382 voting areas and the twelve UK regions had declared their totals. With a national turnout of 72% across the United Kingdom and Gibraltar the target to secure the majority win for the winning side was 16, 788, 672 votes. The vote of the electorate was to "Leave the European Union" by a majority of 1, 269, 501 votes (3.8%) over those who voted "Remain a member of the European Union". The national turnout of 72% was the highest ever for a UK-wide referendum and the highest for any national vote since the 1992 general election.
