The Council is undertaking a review of its current polling districts and polling places. The objective of the review is to ensure that polling arrangements remain suitable and convenient for voters.
This review is being undertaken with particular reference to the arrangements for Fratton ward to address some changes in the availability of polling station venues but comments or proposals relating to any other wards are also welcome.
The review will look at the designation of polling places and the sub-division of electoral wards into polling districts.
- A polling district is a sub-division of an electoral area (ward) into a smaller geographical unit comprising a number of streets/houses
- A polling place is a building or area in which polling stations will be designated by the Returning Officer
- A polling station is defined as the actual room or building where the poll is held
