Polling District Review 2019

The Reason for the Review

Under the Representation of the People Act 1983, the Electoral Administration Act 2006 and the Review of Polling District & Polling Places (Parliamentary Elections) Regulations 2006, Swansea County Borough Council has a duty to divide the district into polling districts and to designate a polling place for each polling district. It also has to keep these arrangements under review.

In order to comply with the above legislation the City and County of Swansea is required to complete a full review of all polling districts and polling places every five years. However this does not prevent changes being made at any time prior to the next review.

The arrangements made for United Kingdom Parliamentary elections are also used at all other elections and referenda.
