Poll cards are now being issued to voters.

POLL card letters for the UK parliamentary election are being issued to voters in both the Aberdeenshire North and Moray East and Moray West, Nairn and Strathspey constituencies.

The notice of election was posted on Moray Council’s and Aberdeenshire Council’s website on Friday, May, 31 triggering the pre-election period.

Now, thousands of poll card letters are dropping on doormats of registered voters across the area, ahead of the election on July 4.

Poll cards have a new look this year and will come as a letter so that electors have all the information needed about the new arrangements for UK parliamentary elections, like a reminder to bring ID for this election. Just bring the poll card letter along to the polling station to vote as normal.

Voters must bring an accepted form of ID to vote in person and are encouraged to apply for an a Voter Authority Certificate by Wednesday, June 26 if they do not already have an accepted form of ID.

Every voter will be offered the use of a pencil when they enter the polling station. Those wishing to use a pen should bring their own as these will not be supplied.

The deadline for registering to vote is Tuesday, June 18, and Wednesday, June 19 for registered voters applying for, or makes changes to, a postal or postal proxy vote registration.
