Polling District and Polling Place Review 2023

Wiltshire Council will be carrying out a review of the polling districts and polling places in Wiltshire, as we are required to do by law.

Notice of Review

Notice is hereby given that Wiltshire Council is conducting a review of its current polling districts and polling places. 

Notice of Review (OpenDocument text format) [60KB] (opens new window)

The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 introduced a change to the timing of compulsory reviews of UK Parliamentary polling districts and polling places. The next compulsory review must now be started and completed between 1 October 2023 and 31 January 2025 (inclusive).

The purpose of the review is to ensure that all polling districts and polling places are, as far as possible, suitable and accessible to all voters.

The 2023 Polling District and Polling Place review will be based on current parliamentary constituency boundaries. They will also have regard for the new parliamentary constituencies that come into force for the next parliamentary election that must be held before January 2025.
