Polls Open In Scotland

5 May 2016, 07:37

Scotland goes to the polls today to elect its next batch of MSPs to the Scottish Parliament.

The next Scottish Government will preside over the most powerful Scottish Parliament since the Act of Union, with the Scotland Act devolving a range of previously unavailable tax and spend powers.

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon is expected to cast her ballot in her Glasgow constituency this morning.

Ms Dugdale and Ms Davidson will both cast their ballots in Edinburgh, after the Conservative leader switched her constituency from the Glasgow region she won in 2011 to her adopted home in the Scottish capital.

Scottish Green co-convener Patrick Harvie will be in his Glasgow Kelvin target seat, one of only three constituencies hits party is contesting.

Mr Coburn will be voting in Kinghorn and Mr Rennie will be in Blairadam, both in Fife.
