The boundaries were different at the last election five years ago so direct comparisons are impossible.

However the figure is a significant fall from the 68.9% turnout in the old Moray constituency back in 2019

It’s also a drop from the 70.2% recorded for the former Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey constituency.

The count is continuing to ascertain how many votes each candidate has received.

As for a winner it appears to be neck and neck between the SNP and the Conservatives, with Labour also performing veery strongly. However, observers from the parties state that the result is still far too close to call.

Seven candidates are contesting the seat.

In alphabetical order they are: Neil Alexander (Lib Dems), James Hynam (Labour), Graham Leadbitter (SNP), Euan Morrice (Scottish Family) Kathleen Robertson (Conservative), Steve Skerrett (Reform) and Draeyk Van Der Horn (Greens).
