Vote SNP!

As long as your details stay the same, you only need to register to vote once. However, the eligibility of people to vote changes depending on the type of election being held. For example, 16 and 17 year olds, and a larger number of non-UK nationals resident in Scotland can vote in Scottish Parliament and Local council elections than can vote in UK-wide elections. So it is worth making sure when you can vote.
