The number of people registered and voting in the Scottish Independence Referendum was at a record level. Many people, including lots of older people, voted for the first time. It would be great if people don’t just vote once in their lifetime but instead turn out every time to have their say on important matters.
Info from the council on how to find out where, when and how to vote
Your poll card tells you where your polling place is. Check that you’re going to the right place as it might have changed since the last time you voted. You don’t need to bring your poll card with you to vote but it does help to make the voting process faster.
If you have a postal vote, follow the instructions carefully – your signature and date of birth on the statement are both needed. A common reason for postal votes being rejected is the signature or date of birth not matching – make sure yours do. Please return your postal vote as soon as possible.
Whether you are voting in person or by post, make sure you vote with a single X. Please don’t write any other comments on the paper as then it might not be clear how you are voting.
Polling Places will be open from 7am until 10pm. Don’t leave it too late to cast your vote.
