The Electoral Commission is sending an impartial informationbooklet to 28 million households across the UK starting on Monday 16 May. An accompanying ‘Unmissable’ integrated campaign launches this week and willrun until polling day, appearing across TV, radio, video on demand services,billboards, digital and social media.

The campaign is designed to ‘cut through’ the noise thateveryone will be hearing about the EU referendum by creating eye-catchingadvertising ‘you can’t miss’. The TVC was directed by Nadia Marquard Otzen ofAcademy films. It is based on a successful campaign the Commission andMullenLowe London ran ahead of the Scottish independence referendum where bypolling day 84% of people surveyed said they recognised the advertising.

The booklet reminds voters that if they are not alreadyregistered to vote then they must do this by the deadline of Tuesday 7 June.Around 7.5m million people in Great Britain aren’t registered to vote.
