Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Cornwall Council is reviewing current polling district and polling place arrangements for elections. This review may change where you vote at future elections. The Council is required by law to review all polling districts and polling stations in Cornwall by 31 January 2025.

The review will aim to ensure that voting arrangements for future elections suit the needs of electors in each area, so that electors have access to reasonable facilities for voting.

Polling districts : The Council must divide its area into polling districts for all elections. Each parish, unless there are special circumstances, must be a separate polling district. We must try to seek to ensure that all the electors have reasonable facilities for voting.

Polling places and polling stations : A polling place is the building, area or polling district. in which polling stations will be selected. The polling station is the place where voting takes place.

Polling places and polling stations are set by the Acting Returning Officer. To view the Acting Returning Officer's recommendations, please use the links below:

Commenting on the review

Between 2 October and 6 November 2023 we invited comments on these arrangements. We were particularly interested to know if there are more suitable premises we could use or if there are any specific issues about to access to our polling stations.

We are now analysing the feedback we received to inform the next stage of the review.
