Overview

The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 requires the Returning Officer to decide how many polling stations are required for each polling place and they must allocate electors to the polling stations in such manner as they think most convenient. 

The Returning Officer must comment during any review of UK Parliamentary polling districts and polling places on both existing polling stations and the polling stations that would likely be used if any new proposal for polling places were accepted.

Why We Are Consulting

To identify potential changes to polling stations and polling district boundaries.
