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.

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.
