MSYP elections

MSYP elections

Voting for the Scottish Youth Parliament is now open! We want you to have your say and vote for who you'd like to see representing Scouts Scotland at the Scottish Youth Parliament. 

Scouts Scotland has two Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament (MSYPs) who represent our youth members at a national level.

How to vote

Our Members aged between 14-25 can vote in this election, using an online voting platform hosted by the Scottish Youth Parliament.

Explorer Scouts and Network Members will be able to log on and vote using a unique number issued to them.

We have distributed numbers to every District Commissioner, District Explorer Scout Commissioner and District Scout Network Commissioner who will pass these onto members.

If you haven’t received a number please contact Janis at

Why vote

We want this election to be as democratic and youth-led as possible so it’s really important that as many of our eligible members vote as possible.

Our previous MSYPs have done great things like raise awareness of hidden disabilities, campaign on period poverty and help Scout awards receive greater recognition.

Who to vote for

We have three candidates standing:

Morven Bayton

Gregor Mitchell

Aidan Urquhart

Voting is open until 29  March.
