Help plan polling places

Making sure polling stations are in right places

With local, parish and town council elections taking place next May, we’re checking to make sure the polling stations are in the right places.

Every ward (which is a geographical area of the borough) is divided into polling districts and places. The Returning Officer has to allocate a polling station within the agreed polling place.

When choosing locations for polling stations, we try to make sure the available facilities are convenient and accessible for electors to cast their vote, and that there are not too many voters allocated to one station.

We want people to have a look at the arrangements we currently have in place, and let us know what they think about them – are the polling stations in the right places and are there any venues that you think would be more suitable?

Your comments and suggestions will be collated and considered, with any proposed changes arising from this review will be considered by the General Purposes Committee in September, with recommendations being considered by the full Council in October.

To see the current arrangements for polling districts, places and polling stations, including maps, visit the polling station review page and let us know what you think. Hard copies can be made available to view at council offices.
