consultationThe Scottish Government is committed to ensuring access to democratic participation for all citizens. The way we vote in elections has remained unchanged for over 100 years.

This consultation will allow the public to have their say on how future elections should be organised.

Councillor Kenny MacLaren added:

“Although the consultation closed on 12th March, it is possible to complete all the questions online in only a few minutes.

“By taking part in this consultation you can influence how elections will be held in the future.
