The people of East Dunbartonshire will go to the polling booths tomorrow (Thursday, June 23) to vote in the Referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union.

All polling cards have been distributed and postal packs have been sent out for those who registered prior to the deadline.

As with the recent Scottish Parliamentary Election, All Saints Church Hall in Bearsden will be used as an alternative polling place to Bearsden Burgh Hall.

Voters in Kirkintilloch who have previously used Hillhead Primary School and St Flannan’s Primary School are advised that the polling place for the EU Referendum will be at Hillhead Community Centre on Meiklehill Road while those who previously used the old Lairdsland Primary School will use St David’s Memorial Park Church’s Hall.

In Lenzie, those who used Lenzie Primary will now use the church hall at Lenzie Union Parish Church, Lenzie Moss will continue to operate as a polling place and those voters who previously used Holy Family Primary School as a polling place will now cast their vote in St Cyprian’s Church Hall on Beech Road.

Council chief executive Gerry Cornes, counting officer for East Dunbartonshire Council, said: “Council officers are working hard to prepare for the EU Referendum - both in terms of the voting process and the count, which will take place in The Leisuredrome in Bishopbriggs.

“For those voting please ensure you are familiar with which polling place you will be using. You will be asked to vote by placing an X next to your choice on the ballot paper.

“Assistance will be available for anyone who requires it on the day and in the run-up to the vote.”
