Polling Station Review 2018/2019

Review of polling districts and places in the borough

The Council has a duty to divide its area into polling districts and to designate polling places for each district and review these every 5 years.
 
The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 introduced a change to the timing of the compulsory reviews and the next compulsory review must be completed between October 2018 and January 2020.
The review is designed to see if the polling districts and polling places in the Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough are arranged to suit the needs of voters and covers the following:
 
  • the polling district boundaries within each ward in the borough
  • the location of the polling places and stations in each polling district
  • the access to each polling station

What does the review involve?

Notice of  Polling Station Review

The process starts with an official notice of review, which gives details of when and where comments or representations can be made in relation to the review.
This review must be carried out to make sure that all electors have such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances.
 
Any elector in the borough may make a representation in relation to the size and boundaries of polling districts and the location and suitability of polling places and polling stations.  The council also welcomes comments or representations from any elected members in the area, local political representatives and any person or body with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability.
 

What is the difference between a polling district, place and station?

  • a polling district is a geographical sub-division of an electoral area, ie a UK Parliamentary constituency, a European Parliamentary electoral region, a ward or an electoral division
  • a polling place is a geographical area in which a polling station is located.  However, as there is no legal definition of what a polling place is the geographical area could be defined as tightly as a particular building or as widely as the entire polling district
  • a polling station is the actual area where the process of voting takes place
