Polling Place and Polling Station Review - Proposals

The ‘Polling Place’ is a building or area in which stations will be selected by the Returning Officer.

The ‘Polling Station’ is the room or building where the poll takes place.

When considering a polling place a number of factors are taken into consideration.  These include location, size, availability and accessibility, however, where the criteria are not sufficiently met it may be necessary to consider designating a polling place which is located outside of the polling district.

There are several changes which are being considered as part of the review.  These are to the following polling districts:

  • Little Braxted;
  • Mayland;
  • Maldon (East)

Further information on the suggested changes can be found here
