Polling Station review, Have your say!

Thursday, November 22, 2018


Residents are invited to comment on the convenience and accessibility of the polling stations used for elections in the Rochford District.

The government requires all councils to undertake a full review of polling stations every four years. 

As part of the review, a consultation period is open to the public until 14 January 2019, giving everyone the opportunity to comment on the polling stations we use, and their suitability, facilities and accessibility.

The final proposals will be presented and considered at a full meeting of the council in February 2019.

Rochford District Council’s Returning Officer, Angela Hutchings said: “We welcome comments on this consultation, so we can make sure the polling stations are in the right place and easily accessible to voters.

“We would like to invite all interested parties to make representations and comments on the existing and proposed polling districts and polling places. Anyone who makes a comment is also invited to suggest alternative polling districts/places which will be given the appropriate consideration.”

Comments or representations can be made in writing to elections@rochford.gov.uk 

Please be aware that your comments will be published as part of the review.
