On this page you will find information about our Scotland office and the work we do across Scotland.

Our role

Our remit includes elections to the Scottish Parliament, UK Parliament and European Parliament. The Scottish Parliament is responsible for Scottish local government elections.

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.
