The Electoral Management Board for Scotland (EMB) has a key role in delivering electoral events in Scotland.  Returning Officers and Electoral Registration Officers drawn from across the country lead and support their colleagues to coordinate elections and referendums  to give results in which the voter can have full confidence. 

In 2014 the EMB gave extensive support to its Convener, Mary Pitcaithly in her role as Chief Counting Officer for the Scottish Independence Referendum.
