A review of electoral polling districts, polling places and polling stations for Parliamentary elections across the County Borough is being carried out by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, and an eight week public consultation process in relation to the review started on Monday, August 19.
The review, which is required by law to take place every five years, will look at existing polling stations and potential alternative venues, as well as the polling districts they serve.
Individuals and interested organisations are invited to provide feedback as part of a public consultation.
Public consultation – Have your say online
The Council would particularly like to hear from any person or group with experience or expertise on access for people with a disability. It is also important that any issues with the accessibility of existing polling stations are raised.
The closing date for feedback is Friday, October 18. Following this date, all responses will be assessed and, along with any recommendations which may be made by the Acting Returning Officer, will be discussed by the Council later in the year.
Any changes would then be incorporated into the electoral register when it is republished on December 1, 2019, and would take effect at any election held after that date.
