The deadline for applying for a postal vote for the Ellon and District by-election has passed.

There is still time to apply to vote by proxy if you won’t be able to cast your vote in person in the polling station on 15 October and have not already made arrangements to vote by post.

Voting by proxy means you arrange for someone you trust to vote on your behalf.

If you want to vote by proxy, your application must reach us by 5pm on Wednesday 7 October.

Further details and an application form are available here.
