Consultation on Electoral Reform – closes 12 March 2018

The Scottish Parliament recently gained new powers over the conduct of Scottish Parliamentary elections and electoral registration, alongside its existing devolved responsibility for local government elections. These new powers create new opportunities and this consultation looks at issues like who should be allowed to vote and the arrangements around this.

The consultation includes the suggestion that all those with legal residence in Scotland should be allowed to vote, such as refugees.
