POLL cards for the Scottish Parliament election are being issued to voters in Moray.

All polling stations will have Covid safety at the forefront.
All polling stations will have Covid safety at the forefront.

The notice of election was posted on Moray Council’s website on Monday, March 15, triggering the pre-election period.

Now, thousands of poll cards are dropping on doormats of registered voters across the area, ahead of the election on May 6.

It’s helpful, but not compulsory, if voters bring their poll card to the polling station.

This year, to comply with Covid guidance, every voter will be offered a pencil when they enter the polling station. Those wishing to use a pen should bring their own as these will not be supplied.

The deadline for registering to vote is April 19, and April 6 for registered voters applying for, or making changes to a postal or postal proxy vote registration.
