Consultation has started about polling districts in the borough.

Every five years the council must carry out a review of its polling districts and polling stations. For voting purposes each council ward is divided into polling districts each with a polling station.

The consultation is to find out the suitability of polling stations and whether polling districts need to be amended.

It’s not a consultation about wards and ward boundaries.

Comments are invited from members of the public until 2 September 2019. Final proposals will be put to the Full Council in October and used in elections after 1 December 2019.

Representations can be made by email to or by post to The Elections Office, Bolton Council, Howell Croft North, Bolton BL1 1QY.

A Notice of Polling District Review and a list of current polling districts and polling stations can be found on our website
