The UK may be leaving the European Union.
EU exit (also known as Brexit) may have an effect on the way you live in Scotland.
This may include changes to civil rights.
EU exit has not happened, and many of the details are not yet known or are regularly changing. This page gives the most up-to-date information, but it will be added to and changed over time, so please keep checking back for updates.
Voting and registration rights
There will be no change to who can vote, or register to vote, in Scottish Parliament and local elections in Scotland after EU exit.
Find out more about how you can register to vote.
Your consumer rights will not change before 31 October 2019. These rights will only change if new laws are passed.
If there is a 'no deal' situation, your consumer rights could change if you're buying products or services from an EU seller. Check the product's terms and conditions if you're not sure.
The UK Government has more information about consumer rights after EU exit.
The European Commission has also produced a PDF factsheet on consumer rights in a 'no deal' situation.
More details on civil rights in Scotland will be added to this page as new information on EU exit is available.
