Polling District and Polling Place Review 2022/23

Closed 31 Dec 2022

Opened 1 Dec 2022


Do you have any comments on the proposed polling district and polling place proposals?

When making comments or alternative proposals, think about the principles that we have used to develop the scheme:

  • Assigns a polling place to each polling district and elector
  • So far as is reasonable and practicable ensure every polling station is accessible to electors who are disabled
  • Helps facilitate the safe and efficient delivery of local and parliamentary elections 
  • Reduces the number of polling places and increases the number of double and triple stations, where possible. This will enable polling places to benefit from a higher proportion of senior staff who can deal with queries
  • Ensure the majority of polling stations have between 1,250 to 1,750 polling station electors. This will ensure that polling stations are not too busy or quiet, our staffing resources are best utilised and Electoral Commission ratios do not require further polling station splits.
  • So far as is reasonable and practicable, ensure electors will not have to walk more than 15 minutes to their polling place
  • Where possible, limit the use of schools
  • Where possible, avoid the use of temporary buildings
  • Implement the LGBCE ward boundary changes
  • Futureproofs against proposed BCE parliamentary boundary changes
