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.
