Under the provisions of the Representation of the People Act 1983 and The Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places (Parliamentary Elections) Regulations 2006, Wokingham Borough Council is required to undertake a review of polling districts and polling places every five years. The review began on 1 October and will close on 16 November.
The review is required to consider the designated polling places and the boundaries of the polling districts within each ward. This review will not be looking to change ward boundaries, as these can only be modified by the Boundary Commission for England.
Wokingham Borough Council is looking for feedback on any aspect of polling districts or polling places currently used from borough residents. Local political parties and councillors will also be consulted.
Further information, including an Interactive Map and online response survey, are available via this link http://www.wokingham.gov.uk/council-and-meetings/elections-and-voting/review-of-polling-districts-and-places-2018/
Please send any comments or feedback via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 16 November.
All responses received will be published online and any new polling places will be designated in time for elections in May 2020.
