Review of polling districts and polling places
Having considered the current challenging situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the review of polling districts and polling places has been postponed until further notice.
Aberdeenshire Council is conducting a review of polling districts and polling places within the UK parliamentary constituencies of Banff and Buchan, Gordon and West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine.
Each local authority is required to carry out such a review every four years to ensure reasonable facilities for voting and that polling places are accessible to all electors, including voters with a disability, so far as is practicable.
Representations were invited from electors within the Aberdeenshire Council area or within any parliamentary constituency within the authority's area, and from anyone else, including elected representatives, political parties and persons or organisations with particular expertise in respect of access to premises for people with different forms of disability. Those who wished to make representations regarding existing polling arrangements were requested, wherever possible, to offer alternative venues which might be used as polling places.
