Already more than 16,551 people have returned postal votes. Those still to post their vote must do so by Wednesday, or take their envelope to any of the Highland polling stations on Thursday before 10 pm.

The Local Returning Officer for The Highland Council counting area at the European Parliamentary Elections and Chief Executive of The Highland Council, Donna Manson, is reminding voters of what they need to do to cast their vote on Thursday.

She said: “We want to make sure people know that they should use a single X when they vote in this election. The X should be placed in the empty box alongside the chosen party or candidate. Everyone who is registered to vote should have received a card with details of the polling place where they can cast their vote but if they have any queries they should get in touch with our election team on 01349 886657.”
