City of Edinburgh Council Polling Place Review Consultation (till 22 Nov 13)

City of Edinburgh Council have a duty to review polling districts, places and stations in Edinburgh every five years.  

They have recently reviewed polling stations to ensure that:
  • they are as easy to use and reach for as many people as possible, including those with a disability
  • they follow the guidance from the Electoral Commission.
The Council has made some changes and you can a view a list of the proposed polling places, or it can be inspected at the City Chambers, High Street, Edinburgh.
You can find further information which may help you comment on the review, for example maps of the wards showing the proposed polling places and estimates of changing populations.
If you have any comments about the proposed changes, please complete this online form between 1 and 22 November 2013.  If you suggest any changes to the proposed polling places, you must outline the benefits to the electors who would be affected.  Please also tell us how people with disabilities would be able to use and get into the building.
The Council will make a  final decision on future polling places on 12 December 2013, and the results will be published online and at the City Chambers.
