Residents across the Amber Valley are being invited to take part in a consultation and share their experiences of the borough’s polling stations, according to a new public notice.
The notice, published on the Amber Valley Borough Council website, details a review of polling districts, polling places and polling stations.
The consultation, which is open now and will run until July 31, asks participants to consider their experiences of voting in last month’s local elections.
The public notice explains: “The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2023 requires the Council to complete a review of parliamentary polling districts, polling places and polling stations by 31 January 2024.
“The purpose of the review is to ensure that, so far as is practicable in the circumstances a) all electors in the constituencies in the Borough have such reasonable facilities for voting and b) every polling place is accessible to electors who are disabled.
“The review will commence on 1 June 2023 and regard will be had to experiences gained at the Borough Council and Parish Elections held on 4 May 2023.”
You can find out more about the consultation – including how to share your views – by reading the public notice document here.
