Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places 2018

Last Modified October 02, 2018
 

Following Hertsmere’s Electoral Review and the subsequent changes to warding arrangements a review of local government polling districts and places must be conducted by the (Acting) Returning Officer. This is to ensure polling stations are located correctly within the new ward areas. This review must be conducted and concluded by 31 January 2019 in time for the all-out borough, parish and town elections in May 2019.

In addition, the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 requires the council to complete a review of all Parliamentary polling districts and polling places every four years. The next review must be completed between October 2018 and January 2020.

There is no difference between these two reviews for Hertsmere as both the Borough and Parliamentary boundaries are coterminous.

Definitions

  • A ‘polling district’ is a geographical area created by the subdivision of a Parliamentary constituency
  • ‘polling place’ is the building or area in which polling stations will be provided by the Returning Officer.
  • A ‘polling station’ is therefore the room or area within the polling place where voting takes place.
