By-election postponed due to coronavirus

The Kincorth/Nigg/Cove by-election which had been set to take place on Thursday 14 May 2020 has been postponed due to coronavirus.

Legislation has been passed in light of the coronavirus pandemic which allows Returning Officers to postpone forthcoming Scottish Local government by-elections and set a new date.

Returning Officer Fraser Bell has decided to postpone the Kincorth/Nigg/Cove by-election and set the new Polling Day as Thursday 5 November 2020.
