Aberdeenshire Participatory Budgeting - How to cast Your Vote

We have gathered all of the applications and now its your time to have your say on who gets what.

Be sure you have read through the different areas to see all of the exciting projects out there and what it is they want to use the money for.

Now let's explain how to actually vote.


Step 1 – Head to voting.youngscot.org and Choose the Aberdeenshire  vote


Step 2 – Enter your Young Scot Number

If you haven't got your young scot card on you when you try to vote - you can come back later OR you can get a temporary number from a worker or teacher.


Step 3 - Select your  Area
This should be the area you live or go to school. You can only vote in ONE area - note that not all areas of Aberdeenshire are represneted this time, if your area is not avialable you do not need to vote this time - watch out ofr another vote coming soon.


Step 4 - Choose your projects

You should choose the projects that you would like to see happen in your own community.

You will be instructed to vote for up to 3 projects depending on the area that you choose.  It’s important that use all of your votes. – trying to vote for more projects, or less than the minimum, will result in your vote being spoilt – it will not count!


Step 5 – Confirm your vote**

Click on the ‘confirm vote’ button


**Note – if you see a red bar during your vote – you have made a mistake in voting. Please go back and correct your vote, if you click submit your vote will be registered as a ‘spoilt ballot’ and not counted.
