Consultations - Review of polling districts and polling places
ConsultationWe want to hear your views on the buildings we intend to use as polling places in future elections.
SummaryIn particular, we want to minimise the number of schools we use as polling places to avoid them being closed to pupils and staff on election days. Our aim would be, therefore, to keep schools on the proposed lists open and make a separate entrance available to voters.
Please tell us what you think of our proposals. They include five new venues, among them Edinburgh College's Eskbank campus, St John's and King's Park Church in Dalkeith and Dalkeith Miners Club.
