Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places

Making sure voting is accessible, convenient and in suitable facilities

The purpose of our review of polling districts and polling places is to try and make sure that our voting facilities are as convenient, suitable and accessible as possible for everyone who uses them.

Following changes made to district ward boundaries, as a result of the recent review carried out by the Boundary Commission. 

 The review will cover:

  • polling districts - areas created when constituencies (for general elections) or wards (for local elections) are split into smaller parts to allow people to vote in a convenient way
  • polling places - the location, normally the buildings, in which polling stations are sited within the polling districts

The review will commence on 3 September 2018 and end on 5 October 2018. A report will be submitted and approved at the meeting of Council on 6 December 2018. 

Please note: The review did not cover the changing of ward or constituency boundaries or names, which are the responsibility of the Local Government Boundary Commission (for wards) and the Parliamentary Boundary Commission (for constituencies).
