Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places: Final Report
Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places: Final Report 2014
The Electoral Administration Act 2006 introduced a duty on all local authorities to Review their UK Parliamentary Polling Districts and Polling Places at least once every four years. The first such Review had to be completed by the end of 2007. Highland Council’s first statutory Review was in 2007 and the second in 2010. The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 introduced a new provision altering the timing of compulsory Reviews. The compulsory Review periods are now the period of 16 months beginning with 1 October 2013 and the period of 16 months beginning with 1 October of every fifth year after that.
The Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places in Highland commenced on Friday 15 November 2013. The final report, setting out recommendations for changing some Polling Districts may be found here.
