Running electoral registration - Scotland

Types of hearings

There are 3 different types of hearing:

  • Application hearings
  • Objection hearings
  • Review hearings

Hearings are quasi-judicial proceedings and should only be undertaken by you as ERO or by an appointed Depute ERO.

You may organise a hearing before determining any application or objection. You may also hold a hearing when you have put an existing elector under review.
