Polling places and polling districts

 

2017 Review of Polling Districts and Places

Fife Council is carrying out a review of its Polling Districts and Places between 18 September and 27 October 2017. 

This review is required in terms of the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 as all polling districts and polling places should be reviewed at least every four years.

As part of this review, we are asking for views and comments from interested people and groups.

As background to the review you can find within the Publications for this page:

  • The Polling Schedule for all four Fife Parliamentary constituencies as used at the General Election on 8 June, 2017
  • A summary of the position with regard to polling places in Fife broken down by Local Government ward (with potential changes highlighted)

The aim of this review is to ensure that -

  • all electors in each constituency have reasonable facilities for voting
  • so far as is reasonable and practical, the polling places that councils are responsible for, are accessible to all electors. In considering suitable polling places, councils must ensure that they are accessible for people with disabilities

It is important to point out that this review does not cover -

  • the boundaries or names of UK and Scottish parliamentary constituencies
  • the borders and names of local authorities and electoral areas within local authorities

If you would like to take part in the consultation, you may respond in writing, and/or provide your views on using Polling Places by completing an online questionnaire, by Friday 27 October 2017.  The questionnaire will be open for use on Monday 18 September and should take no longer than five minutes to complete.  You can access it here:
