The review will give people the opportunity to have their say on polling stations

Residents in Bolton are being given the opportunity to have their say on where they cast their vote as part of a review.

Bolton Council, along with other local authorities, is required to carry out a review of its polling districts and polling places every four years.

Information about the current set up in the borough is available on the council website or by calling 01204 331247.

There are approximately 120 polling stations in the borough, which cover all 20 wards, and residents, politicians and disability groups are invited to inform the council of any alternative buildings which may be suitable if they are not happy with the ones currently used.

The consultation period ends on October 7 and views should be made in writing before this date to the Returning Officer, Electoral Services, Bolton Council, Town Hall, Bolton, BL1 1RU.

Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Corporate Resources, Councillor Linda Thomas, said: “We welcome the views of everyone living in the borough and this is the chance for people to have their say on where they cast their vote.

“We will welcome comments about accessibility and suitability, as we feel these are essential things to consider.”

Once the representations have been collated, any new proposals will be considered by the council and implemented in time for the publication of the new electoral register on December 1.
