Welcome to Your Vote Week: 22-26 February 2021

In June 2015, the Scottish Elections (Reduction of Voting Age) Bill was passed. This made it legal to allow 16 year olds the right to vote in Scottish elections.

Welcome To Your Vote week is a campaign to help new voters firstly understand that they can now take part in the democratic process, and secondly help them know how to take part. The main focus is on registering to vote for the Scottish Parliament Election which takes place on 6th May 2021. Voters must be 16 by this date and the deadline to register to vote is midnight on 19th April.

To register to vote, visit gov.uk/registertovote
