View all responses to the consultation

In January 2012, the Scottish Government held a public consultation to gather views on its proposals for undertaking a referendum on Scottish independence.  This report sets out the findings of an independent analysis of the consultation responses that were submitted to the Scottish Government.

The consultation document contained nine open-ended questions:

  • Question 1: What are your views on the referendum question and the design of the ballot paper?
  • Question 2: What are your views on the proposed timetable and voting arrangements?
  • Question 3: What are your views on the inclusion of a second question in the referendum and the voting system that could be used?
  • Question 4: What are your views on the proposal to give the Electoral Management Board and its Convener responsibility for the operational management of the referendum?
  • Question 5: What are your views on the proposed division of roles between the Electoral Management Board and the Electoral Commission?
  • Question 6: What are your views on the idea that the referendum could be held on a Saturday or on other ways which would make voting easier?
  • Question 7: What are your views on extending the franchise to those aged 16 and 17 years who are eligible to be registered on the electoral register?
  • Question 8: What are your views on the proposed spending limits?
  • Question 9: Do you have any other comments about the proposals in the draft Referendum (Scotland) Bill?
