Have your say on polling stations in southern Oxfordshire

Released on July 14, 2019

Residents are being asked to comment on the location of polling stations that are used for elections in South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse.

The councils are carrying out a review of the polling districts and polling places to help ensure that they meet the needs of voters.

All views are welcome, and the council is especially keen to hear from disabled residents and those who have experience of assisting disabled people with access requirements.

Margaret Reed, Returning Officer for South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils said: “It’s important that all our polling stations are in suitable locations and that everyone can go and vote without having to worry about whether they will have problems getting in and out of the building.

“We’d like to hear from people about their experience of using polling stations during recent elections - whether there are any changes to the location or building that you’d like us to make or to give us details of any alternative places that may be used as a polling station.”

Comments are open until Friday 27 September.  People can have their say by visiting this page of our website.

You can also send a written response to Electoral Services, South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils, 135 Eastern Avenue, Milton Park, Milton, OX14 4SB.

For more information about the review please email the elections team at elections@southandvale.gov.uk or call 01235 422528.
