In accordance with the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, every council in England and Wales must undertake and complete a review of all of the polling districts and polling places in its area within a 16 month period commencing from 1 October 2013. Notice of the review can be viewed online or at Grafton House.
A polling district is defined as the geographical area created by sub-dividing a constituency/ward.
A polling place is defined as a designated area (e.g. a designated building) for a polling district in which polling stations are located.
In reviewing its polling districts and polling places, the council will ensure that:
Although the review is of polling districts and polling places, there is such a close link to polling stations that they were reviewed concurrently.

If you have any queries or require further information on this or the previous polling district review held in 2011, please contact the Electoral Services Team using the details on the left of this page.
