Polling Districts and Polling Places Review 2019

Guildford Borough Council is currently conducting a review of polling districts and polling places according to Section 18C (1) of the Representation of the People Act 1983 as amended by Section 17 of the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013.

This is a statutory requirement. The review has to be carried out every five years.

The review relates to use of polling districts and places during a parliamentary election. It is carried out on a local government boundary basis, which is not necessarily co-terminus with the relevant parliamentary constituency. The Guildford Parliamentary Constituency covers part of the Waverley Borough Council area and these Waverley areas will be reviewed by Waverley Borough Council as part of their review process, consulting with the Returning Officer for the Guildford Constituency.

This is a public consultation and all the information is on Guildford Borough Council’s website you can follow this link to access the information

All comments will be collated and the final recommendations will be placed before the Guildford Borough Council Full Council in October 2019.
