The Scottish Premier League have agreed to move Motherwell's home clash with Hibs 24 hours forward from election night.
Hibs had been due to visit Fir Park on Thursday, May 6 on a date picked with television schedules in mind, but the match will now take place on the Wednesday.
A statement on the club's official website read: "Knowetop Primary, adjacent to Fir Park Stadium, is a key polling station in the Motherwell area.
"With the election vote taking place on the same evening, the club raised issues over safety, congestion, resources and the ability to vote - all of which were accepted by the SPL, Hibernian FC and our satellite broadcasting partner, Sky Sports."
