Voters are being reminded to make sure they are ready to take part in the EU Referendum tomorrow.

Across the Comhairle nan Eilean Siar voting area there are: 

21259 eligible voters

47 polling stations will be open

94 polling station staff will be on duty

Andy O’Neill, Head of the Electoral Commission, Scotland, said: “The Electoral Commission has sent an impartial voting guide to every household in Scotland and across the UK. The guide is full of information on what to expect on polling day and how to take part.

On 23 June, voters in Scotland will get the chance to have a say on an issue of real importance, and we want everyone to feel confident in casting their vote”.

The question on the ballot paper will be ‘Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?’.  Voters will be instructed to put a cross in the box for their preferred outcome - ‘Remain a member of the European Union’ or ‘Leave the European Union’. 

Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 23 June.  Voters who have opted to vote by post need to make sure their postal ballot pack is returned by 10pm on 23 June.  Voters can hand it in at their polling station if they have not left enough time to return it by post.

The Electoral Commission advises voters not to take photos inside their polling station as they could potentially breach the secrecy of the ballot requirements.
