April 19 is the deadline for voters to be eligible to vote in the poll.

Those already registered to vote do not need to register again. Those who are not registered can do so online, or by contacting the Electoral Registration Office.

Those not registered to vote before the deadline will not have an opportunity to cast their vote in the election.

Two batches of poll cards have been issued to Moray voters so far; voters are reminded that while it is not mandatory to take their poll card with them on polling day, it is helpful for polling staff. Some voters may be voting at a different polling station this time due to boundary changes or rezoning – each voter's polling station is detailed on their poll card.

More information on registering to vote can be found via the Electoral Registration Office, and more on the May 6 Scottish Parliamentary election is available on Moray Council’s website.
