Aberdeenshire voted to remain in the European Union, despite the UK looking likely to leave the EU.

With a turnout of 70.6%, the region decided by 76,445 in favour to stay within the EU and 62,515 to leave. That means 54.99% of voters opted to remain a member and 44.97% voted to leave. This matched a trend of Scottish constituencies voting in favour or European membership.

The count was carried out and declared at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.

The votes will go into a nationwide pot - as opposed to elections where a constituency’s votes stand alone - that will decide the UK’s membership. The final outcome will be declared .

139,014 out of a possible 196,809 people in the region voted - in line with the national turnout of around 70% (at time of writing).
