Electoral and Polling Place Reviews

Electoral reviews

Electoral reviews make sure each councillor is voted for by roughly the same number of people to ensure a fairer electoral system and also to review the boundaries between district areas.

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

Polling place reviews

Every local authority must review its polling districts and polling places every five years with a public consultation forming part of that review. The review does not affect ward or constituency boundaries, but is about the locations where people cast their votes in elections.

We are keen to hear from any interested individual, group or organisation, particularly those with expertise in access for people with any kind of disability, on alterations to current electoral arrangements.

Representations should, where possible, include suggested alternative premises which may be used for polling purposes.  Any elector within the Mansfield constituency can make a representation.

You can have your say by emailing elections@mansfield.gov.uk or writing to us.

This consultation runs from Friday 9 August until Monday 23 September 2019.

Maps, information relating to the current electoral arrangements and the Acting Returning Officers proposals can be found below. They are also available to view at the Civic Centre between 10am and 4pm on any normal working day.

Following the consultation, we will make recommendations of any changes, taking account of any representations made. The results of the review will be published in December 2019.
