Polling District and Polling Station Review 2019

Every local authority is required by legislation to carry out a review of its UK Parliamentary polling districts and polling places at least once every five years.  The next compulsory review has to be completed by January 2020.

Why do we need a review of polling stations?

The intention is to make sure that we have suitable polling district boundaries, which take into account the increases in population in certain areas following new development, and to make sure that wherever possible, we are offering polling stations that are in suitable premises in the best location with good access and, good transport links.

In encouraging views, it is of course the case that the availability of suitable polling places is the key determining factor in the makeup of polling districts.  We welcome all comments but would ask that any requests for change include suggestions of alternative locations.

Who can give feedback?

Comments from electors, members and other interested parties are welcome, including any person or organisation with a particular interest or expertise about access premises or facilities for those with different forms of disability.

Any comments / feedback should be e-mailed to electreg@nwleicestershire.gov.uk
