Margaret Ferrier, the SNP candidate for Rutherglen and Hamilton West, is calling on all those who have not yet registered to vote to do so.
The call comes with less than a week to go until voter registration for the General Election closes.
Commenting, Ms Ferrier said:
“As a result of the many elections and referenda we’ve had in the last few years voter registration levels are quite high, however I’m still speaking with people on doorsteps who haven’t quite got round to it.
“Against the backdrop of Brexit and an increasingly right-wing Tory party determined to continue the pursuit of an ideological austerity agenda, it is more important than ever that people use their vote.
“Don’t lose your chance to have your say in the General Election on 8th June – register to vote today.”
Voter registration takes five minutes online at registertovote.scot. Further information can be sought from the local Electoral Registration Office on 01698 476000. The deadline for voter registration is 11:59pm on 22 May. You don’t need to register again if you’ve already registered.
