Both independence referendum campaigns have urged people to register to vote if they have not already done so. Residents have until midnight on Tuesday to ensure they can take part. Voter registration in Scotland has already reached record levels, with more than 4.1 million people listed on the electoral roll. On 18 September, voters in Scotland will be asked to vote on the question: Should Scotland be an independent country? Labour’s Shadow Scottish Secretary Margaret Curran MP said: “There are just 17 days to go until Scots vote in the independence referendum, and many people are already voting by post.
“Two years of work is about to culminate in two weeks of all out campaigning for every last vote. And in these two weeks, the Labour Party will be spelling out again our vision for the future of Scotland.
“I’ve been involved in Scottish politics for 40 years, but this isn’t like any campaign I’ve ever taken part in before. And that’s because the stakes are so high.”
