The Government are currently consulting on The Regional Assembly and Local Government Referendums (Counting Officers' Charges) (England) Order 2004, that will establish the costs of conducting the referendums. The cost will vary from region to region, depending on the size of the region, electorate, and level of turnout.

Based on the figures in the draft order the cost of holding a referendum will be £1.47 per elector, if everyone eligible votes.
