The council is also keen to hear from people with disabilities who may have any issues accessing their nearest polling station. The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 requires local authorities to complete a review of their polling districts every five years.

In Gedling, there are over 60 polling stations, which are used for voting at local and national elections, and there are nearly 90,000 eligible voters in the borough. 

To take part in the consultation residents can visit www.gedling.gov.uk/elections or email their views to elections@gedling.gov.uk or by post to Democratic Services, Gedling Borough Council, Civic Centre, Arnot Hill Park, Arnold, Nottingham, NG5 6LU.
