Polling Places Review

The next Polling Places Review is due to commence on the 1st October 2018.


In accordance with the The Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places (Parliamentary Elections) Regulations 2006, Mid Sussex District Council is conducting a review of all polling districts and polling places in the District's Parliamentary Constituencies . Representations or comments are invited during the period 1st October – 29th November 2013.

The purpose of this review is to:

  • seek to ensure that all the electors in the district have such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances.
  • seek to ensure that so far as is reasonable and practicable, the polling places are accessible to all electors, including those who are disabled.

The outcome of the review together with any recommendations for change or additional polling place provision will be reported to Council for decision on Wednesday 22 January 2014

Background Information

A polling district is a division of an electoral area into a smaller part. They can be thought of as the building blocks from which different council wards and parliamentary constituencies are assembled. A polling district cannot be shared between two electoral areas, such as a parish. 

A polling place is the building or area designated by the Local Authority within each polling district, in which polling stations will be selected by the Returning Officer.

polling station is the room or building where polling takes place.
