Review of Polling Districts 2014
The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 introduced a new provision requiring the Highland Council to reviews its Scheme of Polling Districts and Polling Places during a compulsory review period of 16 months beginning with1October 2013 and the period of 16 months beginning with 1 October of every fifth year after that.
The aim of the Review is to ensure that every elector in the Highland Council area has such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances and so far as is reasonable and practicable, the polling places are accessible for all electors including those who are disabled.
The Council is also consulting with persons and bodies with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability and has invited them to make a representation or to comment on the Council’s proposals, the Returning Officer’s representation or any other matter. Any persons or bodies making representations should, if possible, give alternative places that may be used as polling places.
Documents relative to the first review, including maps detailing current polling districts, may be found here.
The lists of the Polling Districts and Polling Places used at the Election in May 2010 are available from the following links:
You may also complete an online survey, letting us know about the suitability of your current Polling Place.
