Review of polling districts and polling places (Parliamentary Elections) Regulations 2006
The above regulations require each local authority to carry out a review of Polling Districts and Polling Places on a five yearly basis. The reason for this review is to ensure that all electors within the Borough of Swindon have such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable and to ensure that polling stations are accessible to all electors, including those with special needs.
We welcomed comments and representations on the current polling places as part of a public consultation held between Monday 8 July and Friday 16 August 2019. It asked, if possible, that residents and persons or organisations that had a particular expertise in access for people with different forms of disability should suggest alternative places that may be used as polling places.
All representations were sent to:
Comments made during the consultation period are detailed in the document below:
