Angus MacDonald MSP for Falkirk East said:
“Household registration will start locally very soon.
“I would urge all eligible young people to ensure that they are registered. Parents should also be aware that their teenage sons and daughters can vote in the referendum and complete the forms accordingly.
“This is a most important vote in the history of our nation. It is also unique in that it is the first time 16-17 years olds will have the opportunity to shape the future of the Scotland they will live in.
“It is therefore of utmost importance that every eligible person is registered and casts their vote in the referendum.”
