Polling station review

Closes 3 Jan 2019

Opened 3 Dec 2018

Overview

Residents are being asked for their views as part of the Council review of polling districts and polling stations in Reading.

Every local authority must review its polling districts and polling places every five years, with a public consultation forming part of that review. It is important to note that the review does not affect ward or constituency boundaries, but is instead about the location people cast their vote. 

Reading Borough Council is keen to receive representations from any interested individual, group or organisation, particularly those with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability, on alterations to current electoral arrangements. Representations should, wherever possible, include suggested alternative premises which may be used for polling purposes. Any elector within the authority or within the Reading East or Reading West Parliamentary Constituencies may make a representation. 

You can have your say here or by emailing Polling.Review@reading.gov.uk or writing to Reading Borough Council, Electoral Services, Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading, RG1 2LU

This consultation runs from Monday 3rd December 2018 until 2nd January 2019.

Maps and information relating to current electoral arrangements are attached in the Related Documents section at the bottom of this page. They are also displayed at the Reading Civic Centre foyer, at Reading Central Library.

What Happens Next

Following the consultation, the Council’s Returning Officer will make recommendations of any changes to the Council, taking account of any representations made. The results of the review will be published by the Council in March 2019.
