With the European Parliamentary elections and Oban South and the Isles local by-election taking place on Thursday 22 May, Argyll and Bute Council is urging voters to make sure they are registered to vote in time.
“People are talking about the elections, but if you’d like to have a say on who represents you by voting, you need to be registered to vote by the deadline of Tuesday 6 May”, said Returning Officer, Sally Loudon.
