Should your polling station be moved? - The Evesham Observer

Should your polling station be moved?

Evesham Editorial 16th Aug, 2019   0

A CALL for residents to have their say on Vale polling stations has gone out from Wychavon District Council chiefs.

Council bosses have made the call as part of a review of current locations and would welcome suggestions on alternative buildings which could be approached as polling stations for future elections.

Issues being considered include how easy it is to get to a polling station and what its provision for people with disabilities is like.

Residents are being asked to share their experiences of using their current polling station

Elaine Dicks, electoral services manager, said: “We want people to let us know if their current polling station is conveniently situated and user-friendly. We’re also keen to hear if people think their polling station is in the right location.

“If residents do want to see changes to polling stations, we would ask they suggest alternatives. People may well know of other suitable venues we’re not yet aware of.”

Feedback can be sent by e-mail to [email protected] or in writing to Electoral Services Manager, Civic Centre, Pershore, Worcs, WR10 1PT.

Comments need to be received by September 9.
