Voters in Wirral have the chance to review their polling districts and the places where they cast their ballot at parliamentary and local elections.
Starting today (19 August 2019) Wirral Council is carrying out a statutory review of polling districts, polling places, and polling stations in the borough. All registered voters will have the opportunity to share their views and make comments on any aspect of where they cast their vote.
The council is particularly keen on hearing comments or suggestions from people or organisations with knowledge and expertise of accessibility issues.
Local political parties, Councillors, and MPs will also be consulted and representations will be sought from the (Acting) Returning Officer.
Representations regarding current polling places that are said to be unsuitable should, if possible, also include details of alternative premises that may be used for polling places. Any person or body that makes a representation is encouraged to give a reason for the alternative proposal so that it may be given appropriate consideration.
Information regarding the current polling districts and polling places can be found on the council website or from Electoral Services at the address below.
Any views or representations can be submitted by post or email and should reach the Electoral Services office by 18 October 2019. Residents need to provide their name, but do not need to give their address unless they wish to do so.
