Polling District, Polling Place and Polling Station Review 2023

Cheshire West and Chester carried out a review of the suitability of our voting arrangements to make sure that the location of venues, the number of then and their accessibility are fit for purpose for voting at all elections during the next 5 years.

Following a consultation period, all comments were considered and appropriate change were made and approved by Full Council on 14 December 2023. The review did not include:

  • parliamentary constituencies
  • local ward boundaries

Why does a review have to take place?

Under the Representation of the People Act 1983, the Electoral Administration Act 2006 and the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, we have a duty to:

  • divide the parliamentary constituencies in the Cheshire West area into geographical areas, called polling districts
  • assign polling places and polling stations to each polling district

A polling station is the venue where people from a polling district go to vote. A polling place is the geographical area in which a polling station is located.
