Ballot papers for postal voters in the Western Isles have started arriving on doormats, ready for the Comhairle nan Eilean Siar election on Thursday 4 May.


For this election voters use numbers to ast their choice.


Candidates are to be numbers in order of preference using 1, 2, 3 and so on.


Returning officer, Malcolm Burr, said: “You can make as many or as few choices as you wish.


“When you receive your postal voting pack, make sure you read and follow the instructions carefully before completing your ballot paper.


“Don’t forget to include your date of birth and signature on the postal voting statement. Follow the instructions in the pack to make sure your vote counts.”


Postal ballot papers must be received by the returning officer by 10pm on 4 May.


“As soon as you have completed your ballot paper and postal vote statement place it in the envelope and return it to make sure that it is received in good time.”
