Coronavirus (COVID-19) -
Information and advice.


I have been made aware that a very small number of postal vote packs issued for the Scottish Parliament 2021 election, did not include the text "My date of birth is" on the postal vote statement.

I have taken prompt action to rectify this matter and retrieve these packs, so that the matter can be addressed by IDOX our print contractor.  Replacements packs will be issued.

I have consulted with elections management board and the electoral commission for Scotland and they are satisfied with the action I am taking.

If you have any concerns please get in touch by calling us on 030 33 33 3000 or by emailing
