What are Polling Districts and Polling Places?
- A polling district is a geographical area. In England, each parish is a separate polling district unless there are special circumstances such as a larger area i.e. towns or larger villages. A polling district is a sub-division of a UK Parliamentary constituency
- A polling place is the building or area in which a polling station will be chosen by the (Acting) Returning Officer
- A polling station is the room or area within the polling place where voting takes place.
The review is compulsory and takes place every 5 years.
