Comments are being sought from residents and interested groups on a review of the existing polling districts and polling places situated within the Huntingdonshire area.

The District Council is looking for feedback on any aspect of polling districts and/or polling places currently used and invites representation and comments from interested persons, especially from an access point of view.

There is a requirement for the District Council to complete a full review of all polling district and polling places every five years, to make sure arrangements are as convenient as possible for any future elections or referendums.

Jo Lancaster, Managing Director and Returning Officer for the District Council, said "We’re asking community groups and individuals to provide as much information as they can about their current polling station, including issues such as location, parking and disability access and whether they are aware of any other suitable premises that could be used for polling duties."

The closing date for comments is 14 August 2019.

The feedback received will inform the final recommendations which will be presented to the council in October 2019.

Details of the current arrangements, and how you can comment on them, can be found on our page Polling District Review.
