A REVIEW is under way to ensure all electors have reasonable facilities for voting

Herefordshire Council is inviting the public to comment on the polling arrangements it uses for elections.

The review includes polling district boundaries and polling stations, but does not affect ward or constituency boundaries.

The location and accessibility of polling station buildings will be reviewed while residents will also have the opportunity to suggest other buildings that may be used for polling.

Herefordshire Council is keen to hear from any interested individual, group or organisation about alterations to current electoral arrangements, particularly from those with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability.

Any elector within Herefordshire may take part in the consultation which runs until September 23.

Final recommendations will be presented to Full Council in October based upon consultation feedback and the (Acting) Returning Officer’s comments.

Printed copies of the polling review proposals can be viewed at Hereford Town Hall, and Hereford, Leominster, Ross, Ledbury, Kington and Bromyard library.

The proposals can also be seen at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/pollingreview
