Polling District and Place Review 2017

Wards and Boundary maps

The purpose of our review of polling districts and polling places is to ensure voting facilities are convenient and accessible for all voters.



The requirements are that:

  • all electors in the constituency have reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances; and

  • polling places should be accessible to all electors, including those with disabilities.

We welcome any comments from electors or interested persons relating to polling places in the Beaconsfield constituency.

In particular, comments will be invited from such persons who may have particular expertise in relation to access to premises or facilities for persons who have different forms of disability.

Definition of terms:

  • A polling district is a geographical area created by the sub-division of a parliamentary constituency or ward into smaller parts.

  • A polling place is the building or area in which polling stations will be located.

  • A polling station is the area within the polling place where voting takes place.

Please note this review does not cover the changing of ward or constituency boundaries.
