Voting for the UK parliament

The City Council has highlighted that in order to vote at the UK parliamentary elections in future, you will need to show ID at the polling station. This ID requirement does not apply at other elections in Scotland.

If you don’t have valid ID from the list of approved ID, you can apply for a Voter Identification Certificate free of charge. This can be done online or by making an appointment at the council's Customer Services department.

There is also a change in legislation regarding postal votes and if someone doesn’t have a current postal vote and wishes to apply for the UK General Election then you need to apply online for a postal votes for the UK General Election.
