Three people turned up to vote for the election to discover their names had already been crossed off.
A spokesman for the returning officer at the Glasgow North East by-election has confirmed that police are investigating three ballot papers.
In what is known as ‘personation’, the spokesperson confirmed that three voters had turned up to cast their ballot on Thursday to discover that their names had already been crossed off the voting register.
One person turned up at Alexandra Parade Primary School, while a further two turned up to St Dennis’ Primary School, which are both in Dennistoun.
While the police continue to investigative, the spokesman said that the incident was not a “clerical error” and all three votes ballot papers will still be counted.
Police currently have the ballot papers.
