What to expect in a polling station during a pandemic

Covid safety measures mean Scotland's polling places will look a little different on Thursday.

Polling stations open at 7am on Thursday morning as voters choose the make-up of the next Scottish Parliament.

But they’ll look a little different than usual to ensure safety measures are in place preventing the spread of Covid-19.

Counting will also take longer than normal, with the usual overnight drama replaced by a slow and steady approach possibly lasting until Sunday.

We took an early look inside a polling station in Cupar, Fife, to make sure you know what to expect.
