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.
We published a Notice of Review of Polling Stations 2019 (pdf).
This review notice was open to representations (comments) until 31 July 2019.
The (Acting) Returning Officer for Harlow commented on the current arrangements and proposed changes.
The (Acting) Returning Officer’s proposals were open for representations until 20 September 2019.
The Cabinet will consider all the proposals on 15 October 2019. If the proposals are approved, they will come into effect when the revised version of the electoral register is published on 1 December 2019.
