Residents are being asked for their views as part of the Reading Borough Council’s review of polling districts and polling stations in Reading.
Every local authority must review its polling districts and polling places every five years, with a public consultation forming part of that review. It is important to note that the review does not affect ward or constituency boundaries, but is instead about the location people cast their vote.
Reading Borough Council is keen to receive representations from any interested individual, group or organisation, particularly those with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability, on alterations to current electoral arrangements. Representations should, wherever possible, include suggested alternative premises which may be used for polling purposes. Any elector within the authority or within the Reading East or Reading West Parliamentary Constituencies may make a representation.
