Council counts on Meadowbank

Campaigners today welcomed Edinburgh council’s decision to use Meadowbank Stadium for counting the votes at next month’s European elections.
 
Meadowbank had been used for all election counts since it opened in 1970 but Edinburgh Council decided to use Ingliston as their base for the elections two years ago when the future of the stadium was a key local election issue. The Ingliston count was married by controversy and massive problems.
 
“The decision to move the count two years ago was wrong and we welcome its return to Meadowbank,” said Save Meadowbank spokesperson Kevin Connor.
 
“Meadowbank is one of Edinburgh Council’s largest assets. Its large halls and central location make it an ideal venue.”
