Renfrewshire Council

​​​​​​​Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places

We are carrying out a review of our polling districts and polling places and we'd like to hear your views. Each polling district has a designated polling place for use on election days, providing suitable facilities which are accessible to all electors.

Every local authority is required to review their polling districts and polling places every five years and we'd like your comments both on our current polling districts and the suitability of the buildings and rooms we use on election days for polling purposes.

We always aim to locate polling stations within a convenient distance from the majority of electors' homes, with the premises being easy to find and accessible to all. It can be difficult to find the perfect premises and securing permission to use them, but we always aim to secure the best possible solution.

You can view our current polling district maps and our polling plan lists the current polling places. We've also included election specific statistics by polling district.

How do I have my say?

Our feedback period is now open and runs until 1 May 2019.

We're keen to hear from electors, elected members and political parties in the Renfrewshire Council area and within any of the Renfrewshire parliamentary constituencies, sharing your views on our current districts and on how to ensure our polling places are accessible for all voters.

All submissions we receive will be acknowledged, considered and published in a council report.

What happens next?

We will collate the feedback received into an initial report for councillors to consider in June and then publish draft proposals which will be put forward for public consultation, closing on 31 August 2019. A final report shaped by this consultation will be considered at the council meeting on 26 September 2019.
