Review of polling districts, polling places and polling stations 2019

South Ribble Borough Council is conducting a statutory review of its polling districts, polling places and polling stations. The definitions of these are as follows:

  • A polling district is a geographical area which is created by dividing up an electoral area. All wards within South Ribble are divided into polling districts, which form the basis upon which the register of electors is produced.
  • A polling place is the designated area (i.e. building) in which a polling station is located in a particular polling district.
  • A polling station is the area where the process of voting takes place (i.e. a room within a building).

The aim of the review is to ensure that:

  • Electors have such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances; and
  • As far as is reasonable and practicable, polling places are accessible to all electors, and take into account the needs of disabled persons.

The review will not consider ward boundaries or parliamentary constituencies.
