We are carrying out a review of our polling stations and polling districts (the areas that define which polling station people vote at) - read the report to the Regulatory & Licensing Committee or download the formal notice to find out more.
Up to 82,000 local people are eligible to vote in any district-wide elections. When an election is called (whether that's parish, district, county, parliamentary, European or national or neighbourhood referendums), we organise up to 96 polling stations that span two parliamentary constituencies and 28 parishes. View our online map to see all the local polling stations, or download a list of polling stations (check tabs along the bottom of the spreadsheet to look at each area). Read the response to the review from the acting returning officer.
We would like to hear from anyone with a view on polling stations in our district - whether you are a disabled resident with specific accessibility needs, whether you are a representative of a local council, organisation or political party, or whether you are a parent at a local school that closes due to elections.
Our aim is to make sure voters can have their say at polling stations which are, as far as is reasonably possible, accessible, in sensible locations and have good facilities for disabled people, including ramps etc.
The responses we get will be considered by our Regulatory & Licensing Committee in November, and then by Full Council in December. They will then be used to determine the polling stations we will use for elections that take place between 2020 and 2025.
