£eith Chooses – come and vote!

The applications are now in, and we are getting ready for voting!

You can come along on Saturday 3rd March (voting 12.00 noon – 3.00 p.m.) to the Leith Community Centre, Kirkgate, and vote in person. This is much the best way to vote because it will be sociable and really good fun! You can meet the applicants, hear / chat informally about all the great projects on offer, and then cast your votes for your favourites. We have free food and refreshments, and face-painting, glitter tattoos and balloon modelling, so that all the family can enjoy the day out. And if you come along and vote in person, you also get a bonus online vote.

Online Voting

From 3rd March, for a week, you can vote online.
You need a unique Voter ID number in order to log in and vote. You can get a card with a voter ID number from the Leith Library, the MacDonald Road Library, or from any of the £eith Chooses team (who will be out and about all week in various locations and also at Voter Support Sessions, see below).
Week beginning 5th March 2018, voter support sessions will be held as follows:
Mondays: Leith Library, Ferry Road, 12-2 pm and 5-7 pm
Tuesdays; McDonald Road Library, 12-2 pm and 5-7 pm
