From The Independent:
Calls are growing for the voter registration deadline to be extended after the website for people to register to vote online crashed just hours before the deadline.
People trying to register to vote reported errors and timeouts as the midnight deadline for eligibility to vote in the 23 June referendum approached last night.
At 10.15pm on Tuesday there were over 50,000 users accessing the voter registration website at any one time.
The surge came after a TV debate between PM David Cameron and UKIP politician Nigel Farage on a Brexit. Snap online polls showed that Farage, who favours a Brexit, won the debate by a large margin.
