General election timetable for Moray revealed
THE timetable and arrangements for the general election in Moray have been published.
There will be 57 polling stations in operation across Moray for the election on Thursday, December 12.
Voters have until November 26 to register to vote and apply for a postal vote.
Candidate nominations formally open on November 11, with four days to lodge nominations. Candidates will be formally announced following the close of nominations at 4pm on November 14.
People can apply to register to vote online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote - to do this you’ll need your National Insurance number to hand. If you’re already registered to vote, you do not need to re-register.
Postal votes will be issued for existing postal voters around November 27 and, for newly-applied postal voters, around December 3.
If you can’t get to your polling place on polling day, voters also have the option of appointing a proxy voter to vote on their behalf. More information on this is available at www.votemoray.org or voters can call the local electoral registration office on 01343 619819.
The polling stations will be open from 7am–10pm.
Polling cards will be issued to registered voters in two issues with the first issue to registered voters around November 20. You do not need your polling card to vote, but it helps staff in polling places if you bring it with you when placing your vote.
