The last day to apply for a new proxy vote for the Scottish Parliament election is 5pm on Tuesday 26 April 2016.

The date on which you receive your postal vote will depend on the date you apply for your postal vote. If you have an existing postal vote your postal voting pack will be sent out around ten to fifteen working days before the election. If you wait until the last minute to apply for a postal vote your pack will not arrive until nearer the day of the election.

Once you've have received your postal pack, read the enclosed instructions, mark your vote on the ballot papers, complete the postal voting statement and put these in the envelopes provided making sure you send your completed pack back as soon as possible and by no later than 10pm on Thursday 5 May. If it arrives later than this your vote won't be counted.

Please note that postal vote applications which will require the postal ballot pack to be delivered to an overseas address should be made as early as possible. Where applications are made close to the cut off deadline (Tuesday 26 April), the delivery date of the postal ballot pack will depend upon the level of service delivery in that country and, in some instances, it is possible that the postal ballot pack may not be delivered in sufficient time for it to be counted at the election.
