neil wuid ken......

But he's no here these days.

See this referendum thing a few days ago........ I was in Argyle a couple of weeks ago and got talking to this English family who have a very nice and Not small house there. They try to spend at least one week in six there, the rest of the time they're in London.

Now my question is this. Would it have been possible for them to be registered voters both in London and Argyle? There's an awful lot of English holiday homes  in that part of the country........ A lot of No  votes.

It is possible but entirely illegal.

You can check the electoral register to be certain, see if anyone s registered at the address. If there is and they don't live there full time, grass them up - its a serious offence

I also asked Neil by email.
I also mentioned French pal of mine who can vote in local elections here, but no National elections in Scotland. At the same time he can still vote in French national elections, but not French local elections.

Neil reckons that each different type of ballot has its own unique rules. For example, 16 and 17 year-olds were able to vote in the referendum, but they still can't vote in council elections or Scottish and Uk parliamentary elections.

So the answer to my question might be "maybe", as far as I can see.

When my membership card arrives, hopefully I'll be able to get clarification somewhere on their website. (I was one of the first of the new 50000 members.......... who should have got involved a lot sooner.)

Theoretically there are different  electoral  rolls for if fervent types of election.

Scottish Parliament one does differe from UK general election roll due to differences in criteria of who is elible to vote
