Angus MacNeil SNP Na h-Eileanan an Iar has urged everyone to prepare for polling day Thursday 12th December.
With forecasts predicting colder weather and the shorter days at this time of year this polling day will be very different from the normal early summer elections.
Mr MacNeil said
“With only about 6.5 hours of daylight and the risk of inclement weather it is important to plan how and when you will get out to vote.
“Polling stations are open from 7am – 10pm and I would urge people to vote as early as possible and not wait until later when darkness and falling temperatures could cause problems. For those with transport please consider whether neighbours may need lifts to the polls.
“Finally if you are a football fan and are planning a night watching Scottish teams in Europe on the TV remember to vote early and good luck to both Scottish Teams!”
