£eithChooses voting 2024

You are eligible to vote if you are 8 years old or over, and live, work, study or volunteer in Leith. You can vote online for up to four projects (including your ‘boost vote’). The projects are on the LeithChooses gallery. (This link opens a new window.)

Online voting opens at the very start of Monday 22nd January 2024 and closes at 23:59 on Monday 5th February 2024. You can vote online at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/voteleithchooses.

We are also very pleased to announce the return of in-person voting at a community voting day: Saturday 27th January 2024 (11am to 3pm), at the Leith Community Centre (12A Newkirkgate, Leith, Edinburgh EH6 6AD).

  • Voters may vote twice if they wish to: once in-person at the voting event and once online.
  • If voting twice, voters should tick the box on the online voting form, to state this.
  • If voting twice, voters can cast the same votes in-person as online, or choose different projects each time they vote.
  • All voters get 4 votes (or 2×4 votes for those choosing to vote twice).
  • 3 of the 4 votes will be cast for 3 different favourite projects – only one vote per project – out of the total number of project applications.
  • The 4th vote (which is optional) is known as the ‘Boost vote’. Having already cast their first three votes, all voters can choose to cast an extra vote to support a minority ethnic project. This can be a second vote for a project they’ve already voted for, or it can be a new, extra vote for a different project.
