Gloucester Launches Polling Review

Gloucester City Council is set to launch a review of polling places and districts to make sure it is meeting the needs of voters.

The council is required to carry out a review of its polling districts and polling stations every four years.

The next review will run from October 1 until November 12, ahead of elections in May next year.

The consultation looks at polling district boundaries and will consider issues such as where polling stations are sited and how accessible they are.

Residents and community groups are being asked for their feedback on what they think of the current arrangements and any suggestions for alternatives.

Views are particularly sought from those with disabilities on the accessibility of the city’s polling places.

Jon McGinty, Managing Director and Electoral Registration Officer at Gloucester City Council, said: “It’s crucial that arrangements and facilities for voting in Gloucester meet the needs of all of our voters, so that they can make their voices heard at local and national elections.

“We want to hear from as many people as possible so that we can make any changes that might be necessary in time for the city council and Police and Crime Commissioner elections in 2024.”
