Shropshire Council is conducting a review of polling districts and polling places in the  council’s area, in accordance with the Representation of the People Act 1983 (as amended by the Electoral Administration Act 2006).

As part of the review the returning officer for Shropshire Council will make comments on existing arrangements and suggested amendments.

In addition, representations are invited from other relevant sources such as the electors in the Ludlow, North Shropshire and Shrewsbury and Atcham parliamentary constituencies, councillors, local political parties, and organisations that have expertise in relation to access to premises for people with different forms of disability.

People or bodies making representations about specific polling station venues should give alternative places that may be used as polling places.

This consultation will start on 1 July 2019 and all comments must be received by 12 August – to enable the council’s elections office to make any alterations necessary to the register of electors when it is next fully revised on 1 December 2019.
