Today is the last day to get registered to vote on 3rd May.
You have until 5pm.
All parties want a high turnout in elections because the lower the turnout the fewer votes their candidate can receive.
There are 17 wards in Edinburgh, 129 candidates standing, all wards will return 3 or 4 councillors: some wards have only 6 or 7 candidates standing. Even a few votes can make a difference.
Whichever party you support: whatever your priorities are for the next four years: these next couple of weeks before 3rd May are the time when the candidates who want to be councillors have to pay attention to you. Make the most of it. Get registered. Vote.
