Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places

The Council is statutorily required to undertake regular reviews of its polling districts and polling places, with the most recent review having been undertaken in 2019/20.

The next review must be completed by 31 January 2025 and so this page will be updated once the review process has commenced.

The review requires the Council to:

  • Divide the Parliamentary constituency (Cannock Chase) into polling districts for the purposes of UK Parliamentary elections and to designate a polling place for each polling district.  Polling places should be within the polling district unless special circumstances make it desirable to designate an area outside the district.
  • Seek to ensure that all the electors in the constituency have such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances.
  • Seek to ensure that so far as is reasonable and practicable, the polling places they are responsible for are accessible to all electors, and when considering the designation of a polling place, must have regard to the accessibility needs of disabled persons.

The following are not considered as part of the review:

  • The changing of any District ward boundaries.  The review is concerned only with the administrative subdivision of a ward into polling districts which are then assigned polling places.
  • The changing of polling districts in areas which are also aligned with parish boundaries and therefore cannot be amended during this review (these can only be amended through Community Governance Reviews).
