ELECTORAL REGISTRATION IN EDINBURGH

On 17 January, Ian Murray MP wrote to the Assessor & Electoral Registration Officer concerning the moves to Individual Electoral Registration.

The move away from Household registration may mean that some people fall off of the register, and lose their chance to vote.

Ian said: “I am very pleased with this comprehensive reply from those in charge of the registration for Edinburgh. I still remain concerned that a number of people will still be vulnerable to fall off the register in time for the General Election.”

“In the next 14 months we have three important  choices ahead of us: the European elections, the referendum on separation, and the General Election in May 2015. Of course, I encourage every person who is eligible to make sure they register, then use their vote as we make important decisions about the future of our country.”
