How to Vote

Clackmannanshire Council, and the Returning Officer believe in the importance of citizen participation in all democratic elections. Within Clackmannanshire and Dunblane and the Ochil and South Perthshire Constituencies we strive to deliver election services in a way which actively encourages that participation. Elections give you, the voter, the chance to have your say on who you would like to represent you.

How to Vote

Firstly, to take part in any election, you must be listed on the electoral roll for the area in which you live, you can find out more information about this on our How can I register to vote page.

Once registered, how you vote is up to you. In the UK, there are three different ways you can vote. It may depend on what you find easiest or the most convenient method. Most people vote in person at a polling station. However, if you are not able to go to the polling station in person on election day, you can apply to vote by post or by proxy (someone voting on your behalf).

The information on these pages may help answer some of the questions you may have about the election process:
