Police are investigating an allegation of personation in the Paisley and Renfrewshire North constituency.
Personation is when someone votes for someone else.
A Renfrewshire Council spokesperson said: “We have been made aware of an incident earlier today in the Paisley and Renfrewshire North constituency where a member of the public arrived at a polling station to place a vote to find that it had already been cast by another member of the public.
"The matter was reported to Police Scotland and as such is now subject to a police investigation.”
In cases of suspected personation the poll clerk reports the matter to the returning officer, who tells the police.
If successfully prosecuted, the person could face up to two years in prison and a fine.
