Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places

Local authorities are required to carry out a review of Polling Districts and Polling Places every five years. The review seeks to ensure that all electors have reasonable facilities for voting in elections which are practicable in the circumstances and so far as it reasonable and practical seeks to ensure that every polling place is accessible to electors who are disabled.

We last conducted a review of polling districts and polling places from 1 December 2013 which ended in January 2014.

Since that review the Borough has been subject to a Periodic Electoral Review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England which resulted in the pattern of wards within the Borough changing and the existing polling districts no longer matching with the wards and, as such, new polling districts were required. An interim review was carried out before the Borough elections in 2019

We are now undertaking a full review of all polling districts and stations.

The review will cover:

  1. Polling districts, which are the areas created by the division of wards into smaller sections. Within each polling district a polling place can be determined which is convenient to electors;
  2. Polling places, which are the locations, normally the buildings, in which polling stations are sited.

The review does not cover ward or constituency boundaries/names which are the responsibility of the Local Government Commission (wards) and the Parliamentary Boundary Commission (constituencies).

As part of the review there will be a period of public consultation which will run between 6 September 2019 and 5pm on  7 October 2019. Please see the Icon for pdf Notice of Review [126.83KB] for more details

Runnymede residents and other interested bodies or organisations, are being asked to read the public consultation document and submit their comments, in relation to the size and boundaries of polling districts, and the location and suitability of polling places, with particular regard to access for disabled residents. We welcome any comments from those with expertise in access for people with disabilities.

To comment, please email elec.services@runnymede.gov.uk by 5pm on 7 October. 

The Returning Officer for is responsible for the polling stations, which are the rooms within polling places where the poll actually takes place. As part of the Review, the Returning Officer must formally comment on both the existing polling stations and, if relevant, any probable polling stations based on any new recommended polling places. Please see the notices  which also contain additional information on the review process.
