Notice of Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places
The Electoral Review and Administration Act 2013
The above requires each local authority to carry out a review of polling districts and polling places every five years between 1 October 2018 and 31 January 2020. A limited scope review was carried out in 2018 in advance of the five yearly review to address some urgent issues identified during the County Council elections in 2017. The comments received in relation to the limited scope review have been taken into account in this, the five yearly review.
In formulating draft proposals as part of this five yearly review, the views received from interested parties during the initial call for comments have also been taken into account by the Council.
We are now seeking feedback on a formal basis on any aspect of the allocated polling area or polling station used and invite representation and comments from interested persons. Local political parties and councillors will be consulted and views are invited from residents as well as such groups or organisations as may have particular expertise in relation to access to premises or facilities for persons who have different forms of disability.
Any elector in the Council’s area can make representations, which may include proposals for alternative polling places.
Representations on the proposals comprising the formal five yearly review should be made in writing by 2 August 2019 using a submission form which can be downloaded from the link below.
Responses and comments on can be:
