Electoral and Polling Place Reviews

2023 Review of Parliamentary constituencies

The Boundary Commission for England is an independent and impartial organisation responsible for reviewing Parliamentary constituency boundaries in England. They must make their recommendations for the new boundaries to Parliament in July 2023.

The proposals have been published and you can view the proposals and maps for the Mansfield Parliamentary Constituency and the East Midlands area on the BCR Reviews website (opens in a new window)

You can also follow them on the Commission's social media channels, @BCEReviews on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with key information about the 2023 Review.

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.

The Local Government Boundary Commission has carried out an electoral review of Mansfield District Council and the Commission's final recommendations on revised wards has been approved by Parliament.

The aim of the review was to ensure that ward boundaries allow for ward councillor's to represent roughly the same number of voters in each ward and that each ward reflects the interests and identities of the communities in the area.

You can find out more information about the review and view the Boundary Commission's recommendations and proposed ward boundaries at LGBCE Mansfield Boundary Review (opens in a new window).

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.

The council has now completed it's 2019 review and details of the agreed polling districts and polling places and consultation responses have now been published. They are also available to view at the Civic Centre and Mansfield Library, Westgate on any normal working day.
