Closed 31 May 2016

Opened 5 May 2016

Feedback updated 25 Aug 2016

We asked

We asked you to tell us about your voting experience whether at the polling station or using our postal vote service.

You said

The majority of respondents were happy with their experience. 

90% felt that the building used was suitable as a polling place and 90% rated the customer service provided by the polling staff as good or very good. 

Those respondents that are postal voters like the convenience and find it easy to do.

We did

Where specific issues with a building were highlighted, we have noted this and will use this feedback when we have the next formal review of polling places in 2018/19. 

Where we received comments about concerns that the layout of polling stations were not affording enough privacy for voters to cast their vote, we shall ensure that this area is reinforced at our poll staff training sessions.


Ballot boxThe Returning Officer is looking for feedback from those who voted or did not vote in the Scottish Parliamentary Election from the Clackmannanshire area. 

Why your views matter

Our aim is to improve the voting experience for the voter, if it is within our influence to do so.  So, if you feel that for instance that going to a polling place is an off-putting experience, let us know. 

We have asked some specific questions, but there are comment boxes which you can use to provide further observations or expand on those made.
