Review of UK Parliamentary polling districts and polling places

We are legally required to conduct a formal review of polling districts, polling places (the building within which the polling station is located, there may be more than 1 polling station at a polling place) and polling stations every 5 years.  

The last review took place between 18 July 2019 and 1 December 2019.

The review process

The review covers the location of the polling station within the polling district and the convenience for voters in that polling district rather than a review of the polling district boundaries.

As part of the review process we:

  • sought to ensure that all electors within the authority had reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances 
  • welcomed the views of electors, community groups and any interested persons within the Arun district on existing polling arrangements and encouraged feedback that suggested possible alternatives for consideration
  • considered and reviewed the selected polling place with regard to the accessibility needs of disabled persons
  • welcomed the views of all residents, particularly disabled residents to ensure that polling places are accessible to those who are disabled
  • also welcomed comments from any person or body with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability

If you wish to comment on existing arrangements you can complete a short online survey:

Between compulsory reviews we continue to monitor the suitability of our polling places and polling stations using feedback from elections and by-elections.
