It’s going down to the wire

Levenmouth is gearing up for the biggest single vote in generations - the referendum to decide Scotland’s future.

With close to 100 per cent of the Scottish population registered to vote, a record turn out is expected at polling stations across the Kingdom and the rest of Scotland tomorrow.

Opinion polls suggest it is neck and neck between the Yes and No camps - almost too close to call with less than 24 hours until votes can be cast.

Fife’s turnout could be as high as 80 per cent.

And with the debate dominating the news and our daily lives, pledges have been made that voting will be fair - and no-one will come under any pressure when going to have their say at polling booths across the area.

David Ross, leader of Fife Council, has given his assurances that the referendum in the Kingdom will be handled properly.

He said: “I have spoken to the Electoral Commission ahead of the vote and have received assurance from both them, as well as Police Scotland, that there will be measures put in place to ensure the vote runs as smoothly as possible.

He said disruptive behaviour would not be tolerated.

“If there is this sort of behaviour from anyone, then there will be swift action taken by the police and the electoral officials on the day,” he added.

The Fife count will be held at the Michael Woods Sports Centre in Glenrothes.

A result is expected around 4.00a.m. - but much will depend on the size of the turnout. A Scottish result is not expected until 7.00 a.m. on Friday.
