Thousands of poll cards are dropping on doormats of registered voters ahead of the election on May 5.

The deadline for registering to vote is April 18, with April 19 the deadline for registered voters applying for, or making changes to, postal or proxy vote arrangements.

Voters should bring their poll card to their local polling station on May 5.

This year, to comply with Covid-19 guidance, voters 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.

It is not anticipated that one-way systems will be in operation, however voters are likely to be asked to wear a face covering, unless exempt, and sanitising stations will be available.

The Local Government Election will see 26 councillors elected in Moray across eight wards. All candidates must be in by March 30 at 4pm.
