Aberdeen residents will be heading to the polls today to elect two new city councillors.
The positions in the Midstocket and Rosemount ward and the George Street and Harbour area were recently made vacant by the resignations of independent councillor, Fraser Forsyth, and the SNP’s Andrew May.
Mr Forsyth, a former Conservative group leader, handed in his resignation in July after revealing his family was moving to York.
Meanwhile, Mr May – who previously held the role of the city’s education committee convener – retired this summer.
Voting will take place between 7am and 10pm, with the votes being counted at the Town House tomorrow.
