We have carried out a review of polling districts in Charnwood.
The review started on October 1, 2018 and comments were invited from that moment up until December 12, 2018.
Following that period a report was produced and a series of proposals were taken to a meeting of the Council on January 26, 2019. The report outlining some changes were approved by councillors.
Why did we do it
The borough council is required to review polling districts, places and stations every five years to ensure voting arrangements are up to date and fit for purpose.
Information and background
- A polling district is a geographical area within a ward or constituency (you can have more than one polling district in each ward/constituency)
- A polling place – a location where polling stations are situated
- A polling station – the actual room where you cast your vote (usually a room in a building like a village hall or school (sometimes there are two polling stations in a polling place due to a particularly large number of electors)
What the review covered
The review covered polling districts, places and stations in the borough of Charnwood, including the parliamentary constituency of Loughborough and the part of the Charnwood constituency within the borough.
The comments of the Returning Officer were considered as part of the review. The Returning Officer's report can be read below:
