Polling stations - what do you think?

What do you think about your local polling station? Is it easy to find? Is the signposting clear? Is it accessible for people with a disability?

East Herts Council is carrying out a review of polling districts and polling station places and wants to hear the views of anyone who votes in East Herts. The review is a legal requirement.

The council is keen to hear from interested persons or groups, particularly those with expertise in disability access issues.

Geoffrey Williamson, executive member for finance, said: "When you cast your vote in the district council elections on May 2, that's a good time to have a think about your polling station and what changes or improvements you might want to suggest."

To see details of the current arrangements or if you'd like to suggest an alternative place that could be used as a polling station, please complete the submission form at www.eastherts.gov.uk/pollingplacereview or write to the Electoral Services Manager, Wallfields, Pegs Lane, Hertford SG13 8EQ. Please include your contact details.
 

The deadline for submitting comments is Friday May 17th 2019.

All comments received will be made public as part of the final report but will be published anonymously so your name and contact details won't be included. Proposals will also be displayed in the council's main reception areas at Charringtons House, The Causeway, Bishop's Stortford, CM23 2ER and at Wallfields, Pegs Lane, Hertford SG13 8EQ

Details of the final arrangements for polling districts and polling places will be published by December 1.
