Register for the European Election

Deadline is Tuesday 7 May

Ballot box

East Renfrewshire residents are being reminded to register to vote in the European Election, which will be held on Thursday 23 May.

The deadline for registering to vote is Tuesday 7 May and if you are not on the electoral roll by this time then you will miss out on the chance to vote in the election.

Anyone not able to make it to polling stations on 23 May who would like to vote can also apply for a postal vote, as long as they apply before the deadline of 5pm on Wednesday 8 May. Alternatively an application can be made for a proxy vote, which allows someone else to attend and vote on your behalf. The deadline for applying for a proxy vote is 5pm on Wednesday 15 May.

Many people assume that they are automatically on the electoral register just because they pay council tax and this is not the case. Others turn up to vote and find out that they are not on the electoral roll because they have moved house. East Renfrewshire Council Chief Executive and Returning Officer Lorraine McMillan
