Use your vote on 12 December

Make your voice heard in General Election

Elections

The people of North Lanarkshire are being encouraged to use their vote in the UK Parliamentary Election on Thursday 12 December.

Returning Officer Des Murray is reminding everyone who is eligible to make their vote count.

"If you registered to vote, you will have received a polling card giving details of your local polling station," Mr Murray explains.

"You can vote any time between 7am and 10pm, and staff at the polling station will be able to answer any questions regarding the process. If you're voting by post, make sure your ballot paper is returned by 12 December.

"The UK Parliament deals with key issues that affect our everyday lives, such as the economy and finance, defence and foreign affairs, welfare benefits and agriculture, so it's important that people have their say on who represents them at Westminster.

"Use your vote on 12 December and make your voice heard."

If anyone has not received their polling card, contact the council's Election Office on 01698 302119.

There are four constituencies in North Lanarkshire: Airdrie and Shotts; Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill; Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East; and Motherwell and Wishaw.
