Councillors have agreed changes to Bexley’s polling districts and polling stations that will take effect from early next year.
The Council has reviewed its polling districts, polling places and polling stations to ensure that voting arrangements reflect new ward boundaries and to ensure that they are convenient and accessible for local residents, including people with a disability - writes bexley.gov.uk.
It will write to residents in the new year to advise them that their local ward and polling station may have changed and to look out for details on their poll cards when they arrive. Information about the changes will also be published on the Council’s website and in the Bexley Magazine - writes bexley.gov.uk.
The local elections on Thursday 3 May 2018 will be the first following the recent review of the borough’s electoral arrangements by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England. The number of local Councillors will reduce from 63 to 45, saving more than £200,000 a year. The number of electoral wards will also reduce from 21 to 17.
The Commission’s proposals were subject to extended public consultation and Parliamentary scrutiny.
