Review of Polling Districts & Polling Places

We're reviewing the polling districts and polling station locations that we use during an election.

Any agreed changes which come from the review are due to come into effect at the council elections on Thursday 4 May 2023.

Why we're having a review

The Local Government Boundary Commission England completed its review of the Brighton & Hove’s wards in October 2022.

Its final recommendations have made changes to boundaries across the city.

Wards are made up of polling districts, so we'll need to amend these too.

We're taking this opportunity to improve our polling districts and polling places, ensuring that elections are run efficiently and that our scheme can react to the changes set out in the Elections Act.
