Your vote matters tomorrow

Issued on behalf of the Returning Officer for Highland

Voters in the three Highland constituencies for the UK Parliamentary General Election of: Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross; Ross, Skye and Lochaber; and Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey are being reminded by Returning Officer Steve Barron that their vote matters.

Tomorrow (Thursday 8 June) voting begins with all Highland polling stations opening their doors at 7am and remaining open for voters until 10pm.

To mark your vote in the General Election simply mark a single X (cross) against your choice of candidate. Clear instructions will be on display in every polling booth and trained polling station staff will be on hand to answer any questions.

The General Election count will take place overnight on Thursday 8 June, starting as soon after 10pm as possible, at the Highland Football Academy, Victoria Park, Dingwall.

Postal voters who have missed the post are reminded that they can hand in their General Election postal ballot papers to any of the Highland polling stations up until 10pm tomorrow. To check where you’re local polling station is visit the council’s website at http://www.highland.gov.uk/info/799/elections_and_voting/605/uk_parliamentary_general_election/4

Taking your poll card to the polling station helps, but don’t worry if you forget it as you can still vote without it – just take yourself and vote.
