Polling District and Polling Places Review 2023

Closed 9 Nov 2023

Opened 5 Oct 2023


The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames is undertaking a statutory review of polling districts and polling places for use at all elections and referenda held within the borough. 

Our review will commence on 5 October 2023 in readiness for the next scheduled elections in 2024 and the impending parliamentary election to be held by 31 January 2025.

The review is designed to see if the polling districts and polling places in Kingston suit the needs of voters, and includes: 

  • polling district boundaries within each ward in the borough
  • location of the polling places and stations in each polling district
  • access to each polling station

As part of the review process we:

  • want to make sure all electors in Kingston have reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances
  • welcome your views on existing polling arrangements, and suggestions for alternatives
  • welcome your views, particularly if you're a resident with a disability, as we seek to ensure that polling places are accessible to those who have a disability. We also welcome comments from those with expertise in access for persons with disabilities.

Read the full proposals

As part of the review, changes to polling places have been proposed in the following wards:

  • Coombe Vale Ward
  • Green Lane and St James Ward
  • Kingston Town Ward
  • Old Malden Ward

The polling places proposed in all other wards remain unchanged.

How to get in touch with us

If you have any questions, or need any of the information in a different format, please get in touch with us via phone: 020 8547 5000, or email electoral.services@Kingston.gov.uk.

Why your views matter

The council welcomes proposals and/or comments from any interested person within the authority, or within a UK Parliamentary constituency which has any part in the authority, to make a representation about any aspect of the polling districts or polling places to be used at future elections. 

Proposals and comments are particularly sought from residents with a disability, and from individual people or interested groups and organisations who have experience in making facilities and premises accessible, particularly for people with a disability.

Anyone commenting on the suitability of existing or proposed polling places is asked to provide suggestions for alternative venues, where possible, to assist the review process.

Comments and representations should be made in writing via the online survey, emailing electoral.services@kingston.gov.uk or writing to Electoral Services, Guildhall, Kingston upon Thames, KT1 1EU until 9 November 2023.   


What happens next

Thank you for your comments.

All comments received will be considered when the final proposals are made by the Acting Returning Officer.

These proposals will be presented at the Corporate and Resources Committee on 30 November 2023, followed by the Full Council Committee on 15 December 2023.

The outcome of the review will be published by the Council in December 2023 and will be available for inspection on the Council's website.
