Time out to get #in
The voting age for Scottish elections has been lowered to 16.
This means that if you’re 16 or over on 5 May 2016, you’ll be able to vote at the Scottish Parliamentary Election (as well as in future local government elections).
You just need to register first. It only takes a few minutes and you can do it online at www.gov.uk/registertovote.
During the week of 7 - 11 September schools and colleges across Scotland will be helping 15-17 year old students register to vote by taking time out to get #in during class time.
You’ll need to provide your date of birth and bring your National Insurance number to school that day (you will only need your National Insurance number if you are 16 or over), which you can find on official documents such as letters from HM Revenue and Customs. Otherwise, for help you can visit: gov.uk/ lost-national-insurance-number.
THE REGISTER OF ELECTORS
DOOR TO DOOR CANVASS
Electoral Registration Forms were posted to every residential property in Argyll & Bute, East Dunbartonshire and West Dunbartonshire during the months of August to September.
These forms required a response from either the householder or individual residents.
During the months of September to November canvassers will be visiting properties to collect forms from those households and individuals who have not yet made a return.
The Open Register - How do I opt out of the Open Register?
Like all registration offices, we keep two registers - the Electoral Register and the Open Register (previously known as the edited register). Click here to read more >>>>

Individual Electoral Registration Goes Live
The way people register to vote has changed.
Individual Electoral Registration
This is a new system of registration which has been introduced to ensure greater confidence as to the identity of electors and improved access to the registration process.
Individual registration will require each person to register themselves and to provide personal identifiers - date of birth and national insurance number. This will allow registration officers to cross check the information provided against national databases and other council records before a person is added to the register.
To register online under the new system
You need to provide a few more details to register – including your national insurance number and date of birth. This makes the electoral register more secure.
Fill in your name, address, date of birth and other information. You’ll also need your National Insurance number, which can be found on your National Insurance card, or in official paperwork such as payslips, or letters about benefits or tax credits.
When your information is verified, we will send you an acknowledgment letter.
