Uttlesford Council is asking constituents to have their say on local polling stations used during elections.

The review takes place every five years and aims to gather residents’ feedback on the quality of the buildings and rooms used.

Each polling place should provide suitable and accessible facilities for all electors.

Returning officer Dawn French said: “We want everyone who is eligible to vote to be able to use their democratic right.

“It is important that polling stations and districts are fit for purpose and meet the needs of electors.

“We would like to hear people’s views on the polling places which have good accessibility and those that don’t, and the reasons why.

“It would also be very helpful to hear suggestions about suitable alternatives.”

The feedback period runs until October 7 at uttlesford.gov.uk.
