2019 Review of Polling Districts, Places and Stations
This consultation is closed.
Purpose of consultation
Fife Council is carrying out a review of its Polling Districts and Places. As part of this review, we are asking for views and comments from interested people and groups.
In terms of the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, there is a requirement for all polling districts and polling places to be reviewed at least every four years.
All local authorities have to divide their area into polling districts for parliamentary election purposes, and to designate polling places for these polling districts. The aim of this review is to ensure that -
- all electors in each constituency have reasonable facilities for voting
- so far as is reasonable and practical, the polling places that councils are responsible for, are accessible to all electors. In considering suitable polling places, councils must ensure that they are accessible for people with disabilities
It is important to point out that this review does not cover -
- the boundaries or names of UK and Scottish parliamentary constituencies
- the borders and names of local authorities and electoral areas within local authorities
