Polling district boundaries and polling station locations consultation

Consultation open from 16 July to 4 September 2019.

We are reviewing the boundaries of our polling districts and the suitability of polling stations. We’d like your opinion on the polling station you use.

A polling district is a sub-division of a city ward – it’s the area within which electors are allocated to a particular polling station.

We are required to review our arrangements for our polling districts and polling stations every five years. Visit the Local Government Boundary Commission for England to find out more about the ward boundary review.

Have your say

We want your views on the current arrangements, and any suggestions you have for changes to boundaries and polling station locations.

We are particularly interested in comments on:

  • The location and ease of access to your polling station
  • Whether the building is easily accessible for disabled voters
  • Whether there is a suitable alternative nearby

Links to our current polling district boundaries and polling station locations are listed below.

Email your response to our Electoral Services team at – please include ‘Polling district review’ in the subject heading.

Alternatively, you can post your response to Electoral Services (Polling District Review), Cambridge City Council, PO Box 700, Cambridge CB1 0JH.

Contact us if you have any questions about the consultation.

The consultation closes on 4 September 2019.
