WORCESTER City Council is reviewing the locations currently being used as polling stations for elections and wants to hear your feedback on them.

The council is eager to hear public views on the current polling stations used for elections and are interested in opinions regarding proximity to transport links, safety, ease of identification, lighting, accessibility, size and security, as well as any other issues of concern.

The council is also interested in hearing suggestions that the public might give of any new buildings which could be approached as new polling stations for the future. A survey can be completed online at worcester.gov.uk/voiceit.

Shayne Flynn, acting returning officer for the Worcester constituency, said: “We want to encourage everyone in Worcester who is eligible to vote to exercise their democratic right and this consultation will help us to pinpoint and eliminate any factors which might deter voters from visiting a particular polling station.

"If you have any views on how polling stations in your area could be improved, or would like to suggest alternative locations, the this is your opportunity to influence choices before the next election takes place in Worcester.”

The survey closes to the public on Thursday, October 10. Responses will be considered at Worcester City Council’s personnel and general purposes committee on Monday, November 4 with any changes going to full council for consideration on Tuesday, November 19.
