Holyrood Elections and Polling Stations


Elections for the next Scottish Parliament are on Thursday the 6th of May.

Everyone aged 16 or over who lives in Scotland can vote, regardless of their nationality. Polling stations will be Covid-safe.

It is too late now to apply for a postal vote for these elections, but if you are unable to go to your polling station because of a medical emergency or work reasons, you can appoint a friend or relative to vote on your behalf (a 'proxy vote'), until 5 p.m. on the day of the election, the 6th of May. To arrange this, call the Electoral Registration Office on 0131 344 2500. Further information can be found here.
