POLICE SCOTLAND confirmed this week that a single case of voter impersonation is being investigated, following the election last week.
A spokesperson said that police were informed about the incident Thursday at the Uig Hall polling station, and that enquiries are ongoing to find out the full circumstances.
Argyll and Bute Council would not confirm which polling station was involved, but did confirm a single potential case.
A spokesperson said: “On Thursday, May 6, trained staff in one polling station identified an isolated, potential case of voter impersonation.
“In line with Electoral Commission procedures, we advised election candidates and agents during the count on Friday, May 7, and have reported this to Police Scotland.”
We understand that it has been some years since the last recorded case of voter fraud in the area.
