Polling Districts and Places Review

 

Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places within the Constituency of the Isle of Wight.

The Isle of Wight Council is carrying out a review of the Parliamentary Constituency Polling Districts and Polling Places within the local authority area. This is to accommodate the forthcoming changes to the boundaries of Isle of Wight Council electoral divisions from May 2021.

The Council is currently conducting this review, and would be glad to receive any comments on the matter. Whilst the relevant legislation only requires us to examine Parliamentary Polling Districts and Polling Places, in practise these are the same for local authority elections, and the Council would also welcome any comments on the physical locations of the Polling Stations themselves.

This review can only consider Polling Districts and Places; the names and boundaries of electoral areas, such as parish council boundaries & wards, and Isle of Wight Council electoral divisions, are not included in the scope of the review.

The results of the review and the report will be considered at the November 2020 Isle of Wight Council meeting. We make this information available on this web page in early November 2020.

Any representations should be addressed to:  The Electoral Services Manager, Isle of Wight Council, County Hall, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 1UD. Representations may be delivered by e-mail to electoral.services@iow.gov.uk  The Acting Returning Officer’s representations will be made available on this website: www.iow.gov.uk

All representations should be made by 18 September 2020, and any amendments to the Polling Districts and Polling Places within the Constituency of the Isle of Wight will take effect from the next publication of the Register of Electors.
