Review of Polling District, Polling Places and Polling Stations

The Representation of the People Act places a duty on the Council to divide the District into polling districts and to designate polling places for each district.  The Council also has a duty to keep those arrangements under review.

The Electoral Administration Act 2006 (EAA 2006) introduced a duty on all local authorities in Great Britain to review their UK Parliamentary polling districts and polling places at least once every four years.  The previous review was held in 2011.

Consequently, East Cambridgeshire District Council has conducted a review of the polling district, polling places and polling stations for the South East Cambridgeshire parliamentary constituency.  This covers the areas that fall within the boundaries of the District of East Cambridgeshire, to try to ensure people vote in as convenient location as possible.

Please find below the responses to that consultation.
