Improving local voter access
A review of all polling districts and polling places in Epsom & Ewell is taking place following the recent boundary review by the Local Government Boundary Commission.
The purpose of the review is to ensure that:
• All electors have reasonable access to voting facilities
• Polling places are accessible to all electors including those with disabilities
The 2022 review started on Monday 12 September and views are invited from electors within the district as well as from persons or bodies with expertise in relation to access to premises or facilities for persons with any form of disability.
There will be a change to some of the polling stations residents’ use as a result of the review.
