Have your say in N E Lincs polling district review

North East Lincolnshire Council is carrying out a review of its polling districts and polling places and is asking people to come forward and give their views.

The main purpose of the review is to make sure that all voters in the borough have reasonable facilities for voting and polling places are accessible to all.

People are invited to give their views during this review on the current arrangements and suggest other options where possible.

The council is keen to hear from residents on the boundaries of polling districts, the location and suitability of polling places (polling places defined areas within a district) and polling stations.

The council is particularly keen to hear from people with a disability and any person or group with an interest in accessibility.

Information about the current polling districts and places, comments from the Returning Officer and any proposed changes will be available to view in the Elections section of the council’s website.

Hard copies will also be made available on request at the council’s elections office at the Municipal Offices in Grimsby.

To make a representation email stephen.mcgrath@nelincs.gov.uk or write to Electoral Services, Municipal Offices, Town Hall Square, Grimsby DN31 1HU, by Monday 29 September 2014. All comments will be published.

After the consultation period has ended, council officers will prepare final recommendations for future arrangements and these will be submitted to the meeting of North East Lincolnshire Council on Thursday 13 November 2014.
