Swiss immigration vote: Referendum on quotas

Swiss voters are heading to the polls on Sunday to decide on a measure aimed at severely restricting immigration.

The ballot marks the second time this year that non-EU country Switzerland has held a referendum on immigration.

In February, voters narrowly backed the re-introduction of quotas, effectively opting out of an agreement with Brussels on the free movement of people.
