Postal vote deadline
Borderers wishing to apply for a postal vote for the Scottish Parliament election on May 6 are reminded they only have until 5pm on Tuesday, April 6 to do so.
Polling stations will be open as normal on May 6, with a range of measures in place to ensure that those who wish to vote in person can do so safely, including adherence to social-distancing guidelines and the wearing of face coverings.
Application forms for postal and proxy votes are available from www.scotborders.gov.uk/registertovote or by contacting the Electoral Registration Officer on 01835 825100, or emailing [email protected]
If you are running late with returning your postal vote application, use a Royal Mail priority post box wherever possible.
