POLLING stations are being reviewed across west Cheshire.
Residents are being asked their thoughts on the suitability of polling station premises, including whether they have to travel too far to vote and how easy the polling stations are to find and access.
Steve Robinson, chief executive of Cheshire West and Chester Council and the returning officer for local elections, said: “We want to ensure that it is as easy as possible for residents to vote in elections.
“We would like people to let us know of any issues relating to current polling stations, and also make suggestions for alternative venues.
“For example what are the things that are good about them? What are the things that cause you problems? And what are the things we could improve?"
The first consultation period for the review will end on Friday, November 22.
Any proposed changes to polling districts or polling stations will be published on the council website cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk by Friday, December 6.
There will then be a second consultation period about the proposed changes between December 9 and January 3.
