Reviews of polling districts, polling places and polling stations

The substance of the appeal

The Commission will consider any points that are made by the appellant(s) that fall within the two grounds of which an appeal can be made based on the circumstances as they existed during the review, not at the time of the appeal. 

This is because any change in circumstances since the review is not relevant to our decision as to whether the review met reasonable requirements and / or took sufficient account of disability access. However, we will consider any change in circumstances when deciding whether it is necessary to direct a change to polling places
