Shropshire Council is due to commence a review of polling districts and polling places in accordance with the Representation of the People Act 1983 (as amended).
Representations are invited from stakeholders, partners and other interested parties such as electors, elected members, local political parties and organisations that have expertise in relation to access to premises for people with different forms of disability.
I would like to invite the Council to consider this review and make comments, if required, on polling places within your parish.
When making suggestions, please ensure the following:
- That electors have such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances, and;
- As far as is reasonable and practicable, that polling places are accessible to all electors, including those who are disabled, and, when designating a polling place, have regard to the accessibility needs of disabled persons.
The review commences
on 2 October 2023 and the deadline for the submission of comments is 30 October
2023. This will allow for sufficient
time to enable any alterations to be made to the revised register before it is
published. A report outlining findings
and final recommendations will be submitted to Council on 14 December 2023.
