Postal vote ballot papers for the referendum were sent out yesterday following Monday night’s final televised debate.

As Alex Salmond and Alistair Darling clashed for the second time, currency, the NHS, oil revenues and the future of Trident were once again the topics of heated exchange.

Monday night’s Guardian/ICM poll appeared to show Alex Salmond as a clear winner of the debate at 79% to Alistair Darling’s 21%, a marginal shift in opinion from the debate between the two earlier this month which indicated that the former chancellor scored victory over the SNP leader.

With the postal ballot forms for millions of Scots set to drop through their doors in the next few days, there is little under three weeks left to find out if the latest poll results will be reflected in the votes.
