Do you want to vote in this year’s Scottish Parliament elections?

If you are 16-years old or over and resident in Scotland, then your vote matters – but you must be registered to vote and your voter information must be correct and up to date!

Applications to register to vote must reach the Electoral Registration Officer by 12 midnight on Monday 19 April. The easiest way to register is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

Voters have a range of options for casting their ballot – in person at their local polling station (where necessary COVID-19 protections will be in place); by post; or by appointing someone they trust to vote in their place, known as a proxy vote.
