Record number of voters

The number of people registered to vote in Dumfries and Galloway reached a record level of 75,332 in March last year, according to figures published this week by National Records of Scotland.

This represents an increase of 77 people compared with the number registered for the last General Election in December 2019.

The number of voters registered was also at an all-time high in Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweedsdale, where the figure was 68,874, up 743 from the previous year.

Sandy Taylor, head of electoral statistics at National Records of Scotland, said: “These statistics reflect an upward trend over the last couple of years in the number of people on the electoral roll. The latest data will be used to inform the recently started review of UK parliamentary constituency boundaries.”
