Email Caroline.Lamond@edinburgh.gov.uk for either / both of the above

On the day

We suggest that you come early, if you can – doors open at 12 – don’t leave it to the last minute, because

  • it may get busy at Registration, and at the ballot boxes
  • you will want plenty time to chat to project groups on their ‘stalls’
  • there will be lovely free food on offer, but it may start to run out….
  • your kids may want to get glitter tattoos or face-painting done
  • under 8s may need help with the new ‘Kids Vote’ (for the ‘Best Stall’)…
