Please read through details of the review we have carried out, along with our proposals for future arrangements and comments we received:
A polling district is a smaller part of an electoral area. They can be thought of as the building blocks for which different council wards and parliamentary constituencies are built from. A polling district cannot be shared between two electoral areas.
A polling place is the building or area in which the polling stations will be selected by the (Acting) Returning Officer.
A polling station is the room or building where voting takes place.
