2015 General Election

Yesterday saw the publication of the names of the candidates standing in the City at the UK Parliamentary Election on 7th May.

The candidates for the Aberdeen North and Aberdeen South constituencies are listed on the City Council’s website http://goo.gl/af1b4A and those for the Gordon constituency are listed on the Aberdeenshire Council website http://goo.gl/eDUhD8 

Preparations are well advanced for the processing of postal votes, polling day itself and the overnight count on 7th into 8th May.  I know many Council staff will be working with David Gow and the Elections Team and as Returning Officer I am very grateful for their support and indeed for the work of those who “hold the fort” at the Council while the election is underway.

Finally, the deadline for registering to vote in the General Election is Monday 20th April.  If you’re not already registered you can do it online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
