Background information

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.
