The council is required to divide the area into polling districts, designate a polling place for each district, and periodically review these arrangements.
- 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
The council last completed a full review of polling districts and polling places in 2014.
