Polling place reviews

All local authorities must review their UK Parliamentary polling districts and polling places at least once every four years. We have produced guidance on conducting polling place reviews.

This guidance provides a staged approach to conducting a review of polling districts, polling places and polling stations according to the relevant legislative requirements.

Certain people can appeal against a local authority's review of their polling districts and places.
