The UK is in the European Union. Some people want to leave the EU. Some people want to stay. There is a referendum on this.

There are 64 million people in the UK. 33.5 million vote. 16.1 people want to stay in the EU. 17.3 want to leave the EU.

The vote shows that more people want to leave.

Difficult words: stay (remain somewhere), referendum (when people vote for or against something), vote (put a piece of paper in a box to say if you want or do not want something).
