2018 Review

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 review has now been completed and full details can be seen below.  The final outcome was published in the minutes of Full Council on 21 January 2019 - a link to these minutes is provided below.
