FIFE MSP ENCOURAGES CONSTITUENTS TO TURN THE POST BOX INTO THEIR BALLOT BOX BY APPLYING FOR A POSTAL VOTE

Published date : 11 Mar 2021

Postal voting is the safest way to vote and the application deadline is 6 April 2021

Mid Fife and Glenrothes MSP, Jenny Gilruth, is encouraging her constituents to apply for a Postal Vote by 6 April.

Voters across Scotland go to the polls in eight weeks’ time, but have less than four weeks to apply for a Postal Vote.

By applying for a postal vote, Fifers will be able to vote in this year’s Scottish Parliament election in a way which reduces their risk from the virus.

Commenting, Jenny Gilruth MSP said:

“This year’s Scottish Parliament elections are the most important in Scotland’s history. Every single vote will count. If you haven’t applied for a Postal Vote yet, please consider doing so now.

“Imagine waking up to a message from Test and Protect on 6 May advising that you have to self-isolate and can’t visit your polling station. You can avoid that scenario and guarantee your vote is counted by applying for a Postal Vote by 6 April and turning the post box into your ballot box.

“Our process for postal voting in Scotland is safe, legal and reliable. If you’re like me and prefer to vote in person on the day, you can also organise it for just this year and then you can go back to voting at your local polling station in future years.”

“On 6 May, Scotland’s future is in your hands so make sure your voice is heard.”

Constituents in Mid Fife and Glenrothes can apply for a Postal Vote in the following ways:

All postal vote applications should be returned to Electoral Registration Officer, Fife Council, Fife House, North Street, Glenrothes, Fife, KY7 5LT.

Scans of completed application forms can also be emailed to voters.roll@fife.gov.uk.

Applications must arrive by 5.00 pm on Tuesday 6 April.
