Review of polling districts, polling places and polling stations 2023
In accordance with the Representation of the People Act 1983, the Electoral Administration Act 2006 and the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, Shropshire Council is required to complete a full review of all polling districts and polling places every five years.
The aim of the review is to ensure that:
- electors in the parliamentary constituencies have such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances
- as far as is reasonable and practicable, the polling places they are responsible for are accessible to all electors, and when considering the designation of a polling place, must have regard to the accessibility needs of disabled persons.
In addition, the Returning Officer is required to submit their own proposals for future electoral arrangements.
The review will not consider changes to division or ward boundaries.
