Polling stations review

We have to review our polling districts, places and stations every four years. 

A polling district is the geographical area created by sub-dividing a constituency or ward.

A polling place is the building or area in which a polling station is located.

A polling station is the actual room or area where voting takes place.

We review the polling districts, places and stations, to make sure that they have reasonable facilities for voting and are accessible to everyone.

The last review in Harlow took place between 1 July 2019 and 20 September 2019.
