Cases of suspected voter fraud in several constituencies have been reported to police.
Glasgow City Council reported three cases of alleged "personation" following Thursday's poll while one incident was reported in Paisley and Renfrewshire North, the PA reports.
The offence occurs when a person votes as someone else.
It is understood one instance is being investigated in each of the Glasgow North, Central and South seats.
