West Berkshire council are carrying out a review of polling districts in the area and want your input.

From their website…..

What is the purpose of the review?

The aim of the review is to ensure that electors have reasonable facilities for voting, and that the polling places are accessible to all electors. Every person should be able to vote without facing barriers.

A polling place should be accessible for those with a disability, having good access, lighting, and provisions for those needing assistance. The location of the polling place within the polling district and transport links should be taken into account.

To find out about your polling station write your postcode into the search bar on our homepage, next find your house in the property search, choose “Show Property”, and click on the small cross next to Your Councillors. To see the polling place on a map, click on the code shown under “Your designated Polling Station is”.

Why we want your views

We’d like your views on the current polling place used for your polling district, and to understand how attending the current polling place works for you.

It’s important that we understand what local people think/have experienced casting their vote, so we’d like to know if you’ve encountered any problems accessing your polling place.

We’ll also be gathering the views/experiences of partner organisations, MPs, councillors, political groups, along with disability and community groups.

 

You can access and input into the survey until the 12th December 2023 via the link below
