British Voters Get Ready To Decide on Brexit

On Thursday, June 23, residents of the United Kingdom will head to the polls to vote “yes” or “no” to a single question: “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?” Simple as it sounds, the outcome of the referendum will have a significant impact on the country’s future.With less than a month left before the big decision, proponents and critics of Britain’s exit — or as it is more commonly called, Brexit — have come up with a list of reasons to convince residents to vote for or against leaving the EU. Those that want to leave say it will give the country better control over immigration and ease the burden, on the free healthcare system, as well as public schools, and transport. Supporters of Brexit also believe that it will save the country a significant sum of money given that the U.K. is the third biggest contributor to the EU budget and one of ten members that give more than they receive.
