Notes

What is a polling district?

Every ward is divided into polling districts and each district has a polling place, such as a school or community centre. A polling station is the room or building inside a polling place that is used for elections. All voters are allocated to a polling district and its polling place/station for voting.

Where can I see the new ward boundaries?

The new ward boundaries are available on the Local Government Boundary Commission’s website.

We will be updating this website with maps showing the new ward boundaries and the proposed new polling districts on 8 October.

Where can I see the current ward boundaries and polling districts?

Maps of the current ward boundaries are available on our website.
