Review of Polling Districts, Polling Places and Polling Stations

Each Local Authority is required to carry out reviews of Polling Districts and Polling Places in its area within a 16 month period starting on 1 October every fifth year after 1 October 2013. These reviews look at polling districts and polling places in an Authority’s area. 

A council’s area is divided into polling districts. One or more polling districts can make up a Borough Council ward.

A polling place is an area or building within a polling district in which a polling station is situated.

The Returning Officer for Stockton on Tees has commented on the current arrangements and her submission is set out below:

Comments are invited from electors, and other interested parties, including people or organisations with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability on any aspect of polling districts and/or polling places currently used and on any representation made by the Returning Officer. The Council would particularly welcome suggestions for alternative places that may be used as polling stations where a mobile station is currently used.

Comments may be submitted by post or email to:

Julie Danks
Returning Officer

The deadline for making representations is Wednesday 31 October 2018.

The outcome of the review will be published on the Council’s website at the end of November. All correspondence in connection with the review, including representations made, will also be published.
