Review of polling districts and polling places

Under the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 council's must complete a review of polling districts and polling places at least once every 5 years in a compulsory review period.

We carried out a full review in 2018. An interim review resolved some minor issues in 2019.

How we carry out a review

The following considerations were taken into account when reviewing polling districts and polling places. 

The first 2 are required by electoral law and the others are best practice:

  • we must seek to ensure all electors have such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances
  • we must seek to ensure that so far as is reasonable and practicable every polling place is accessible to electors who are disabled
  • ideally, the polling place should be in its own polling district
  • no polling place should be shared by 2 wards
  • where possible, 'natural' boundaries should be used, such as railways, major roads, etc.
  • all properties in a minor road or estate should, ideally, be in the same polling district.

You can find ward maps for the all polling districts in Ashfield and Sherwood in our mapping section. 

Interim review of polling places

We are carrying out an interim review of a limited number of polling places that have become unavailable for use as detailed:
