Local Government Boundary Commission reviews

Polling place reviews

Electoral reviews make sure each councillor is voted for by roughly the same number of people to ensure a fairer electoral system.

Local Government Boundary Commission reviews

Electoral reviews are carried out by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE).

Their aim is to make sure that each councillor stands for roughly the same number of voters in the council area. They also review the boundaries between council areas.

This makes a fairer electoral system and is called as 'electoral equality'.

When the LGBCE carry out a review, they make recommendations to improve any electoral inequality, while at the same time taking local communities into account.

We provide details of Mansfield's electorate to the LGBCE regularly so that a decision can be made on whether a review is needed.

You can find out more about the LGBCE reviews.

In February 2016, the Boundary Commission for England (BCE) announced the start of a review of the Parliamentary constituencies in England. In July the BCE published the Guide for this review.  Read the pdf icon Guide to 2018 Review [700kb] here. 

The BCE put their recommendation in a report to Parliament in September 2018. Their full recommendations can be found in the  2018 Parliamentary Boundary Review.

Polling place reviews

We must carry out a review of our polling places (stations) every four years. The next full review is in 2019.
