X marks the spot for European Election

Residents reminded of the voting process

Ballot box

Residents across East Renfrewshire are being reminded that X marks the spot when voting in the European Election on May 23.

The process for the European Election requires voters to mark an X in the box on the right hand side of the ballot paper against the name of the party or independent candidate they want to vote for.

A proportional representation voting system is used for the European Election and the number of party list or independent candidates elected as MEPs depends on the overall share of the votes each party or independent candidate receives.

In total, the UK elects 73 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to represent nine English regions, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. In Scotland, six MEPs are elected.

A total of 24 polling places will be used across East Renfrewshire, with the majority remaining the same as have been used for previous elections.

In two changes, those voters who usually attend at Means Kirk Church Hall will use the Lygates Building, on Ayr Road, to cast their vote, and instead of Crookfur Pavilion being used it will be Broom Parish Church. Details of which polling station to attend are printed on your polling card.
