The City of Edinburgh Council must ensure that all electors have reasonable facilities for voting and that arrangements are as realistic as possible. We must also make sure that, as far as is reasonable and practicable, the polling places are accessible to all electors including those with disabilities.
The Council has a statutory duty to review all polling districts, places and stations every four years. The last review was in 2007. There has recently been a review of the constituency boundaries for the Scottish Parliament and the opportunity is being taken to undertake another review, so that the new electoral register, which will be published on 1 December 2010, reflects these new boundaries.
A consultation on the revised proposals started yesterday. Any interested person or body can submit suggestions for change. Public access to the information is available at the City Chambers and can be accessed on-line at any Library in the City. Please submit your comments (to email@example.com) by 1 October 2010.
If you have any general questions about the review, or the maps, please contact Mairi Cruikshank in the first instance.
