Cornwall Council have today (4 March 2019) launched a Polling Districts and Polling Places Review. By law, Cornwall Council must conduct this review every five years. Detailed information is available on their website at www.cornwall.gov.uk/review
The review offers two periods of consultation between the following dates:
Stage 1: 4 March to 15 April 2019 – consultation based on the current 122 electoral divisions
Stage 2: 3 June to 15 July 2019 – consultation based on the current 122 electoral divisions and the new 87 electoral divisions that take effect in 2021.
Cornwall Council are inviting comments on the suitability of polling stations and voting arrangements at elections. The review will aim to ensure that voting arrangements for future elections suit the needs of the electors in each area.
Arrangements for current electoral divisions are shown on at www.cornwall.gov.uk/review. Schedules listing current polling districts in each current electoral division are listed under the relevant Parliamentary constituency:
