Review of polling districts and polling stations

Closed 31 May 2007

Opened 1 Apr 2007


 The Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places (Parliamentary Elections) Regulations 2006 require the authority to review all its polling districts and polling places within 12 months of the Regulations coming into force (1 January 2007). In the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames the polling district is also designated as the polling place. This report recommends some adjustments to polling districts in five wards.

 Under Section 18A of the Representation of the People Act 1983 (as amended) the Council is required to divide each parliamentary constituency in the area into polling districts, to designate polling places for those polling districts, and to keep these under review. Electors must be given "such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances."
