This page contains information about any reviews of polling districts, polling places and polling stations that are taking place.
We are required to carry out a compulsory review of polling districts, places and stations in compliance with the Electoral Registrations and Administration Act 2013.
A polling district is a geographical sub-division of an electoral area. All the Wards within the county of Rutland are divided into polling districts, and these form the basis upon which the register of electors is produced.
A polling place is the geographical area within which a polling station is located.
A polling station is the premises within which the process of voting takes place and will usually be within the designated polling place.
The 2018 review is currently being conducted and full details can be seen in the documents here:
