Renfrewshire Council is implementing measures to ensure the Scottish Parliamentary election takes place safely on Thursday 6 May.
Polling stations have been adapted to ensure that all required health and safety measures are in place to reflect the current Coronavirus pandemic. Each polling station will have a one-way system in place, two-metre distancing at all times, Perspex screens, hand sanitiser and disposable pens, and face coverings will be required to be worn when moving around the polling station – unless the person is exempt. There will also be a designated cleaner for each polling station and supervisors will be in place to ensure that the safety measures are always followed.
Anyone with symptoms of Coronavirus on polling day should not attend their polling station but should contact the Electoral Registration Officer on 0300 300 0150 as early as possible to discuss their options.
