Scottish referendum question assessment and campaign spending limits
After conducting research with a wide range of people and organisations across Scotland, we have recommended that the independence referendum question be amended to “Should Scotland be an independent country? Yes/No”
The question we were asked to assess was: "Do you agree that Scotland should be an independent country?"
We also have published our advice on what the campaign spending limits in the run-up to the referendum on independence for Scotland should be.
Analysis of 3 May 2012 elections
We have published our report on the May 2012 Scottish local council elections which shows that the polls went smoothly, with high levels of voter satisfaction. Analysis shows 89% of voters were confident that the elections were well run.
Candidates and agents
We produced guidance and resources for candidates and agents at elections in Scotland in 2012.
Scotland office - our role
Our remit includes elections to the Scottish Parliament, UK Parliament and European Parliament. Responsibility for Scottish local government elections is devolved to the Scottish Parliament.
One of our key aims is to ensure that the views of Scottish stakeholders contribute to all aspects of our work. This ensures that distinctive Scottish procedures and practices are taken into account and reflected in Commission-wide activities.
We also act as a reference point for electors in Scotland. We are available to answer enquiries and requests for advice from the public and relevant organisations on electoral matters.
