Under current legislation, all local authorities are required to review their polling districts, polling places and polling stations every fifth year - the next compulsory review starts today (2 October 2023) and your views are sought.
We are now seeking feedback on any aspect of the allocated polling areas or polling stations that we will use in the Dover District, and invite representation and comments from interested persons. This includes comments on access to premises or facilities for persons who have different forms of disability.
All representations received will be published on our website on 30 October 2023. There will then be an opportunity for further comment on the responses received. All feedback will be sent on to DDC's Electoral Matters Committee.
Further information on the review including a list of polling stations used and maps of the current and proposed polling districts can be found on the DDC website at www.dover.gov.uk/polling-district-review-2023
Comments can be made using our on-line response form.
Alternatively, please send your comments in writing to the Electoral Services Team marked ‘Polling District Review’ either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by letter to: Electoral Service Polling Review, Dover District Council, White Cliffs Business Park, Whitfield, Dover CT16 3PJ.
All representations at this stage need to be received no later than 23 October 2023.
