Under the Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places (Parliamentary Elections) Regulations 2006, all local authorities are required to carry out a review of polling districts and polling places on a regular four-yearly cycle.
The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 introduced a change to the timing of compulory reviews of UK Parliamentary polling districts and polling places. The next compulsory review must now be started and completed between 1 October 2013 and 31 January 2015 (inclusive).
The Epsom & Ewell Parliamentary Constituency consists of the whole of the Epsom & Ewell Borough plus the Ashtead wards from Mole Valley District Council and Tattenhams and Nork wards from Reigate and Banstead Borough Council. This Council conducts reviews on the Polling Districts/Places within the Epsom & Ewell Borough Boundaries only. The other Polling Districts/Places which make up the rest of the Parliamentary Constituency are reviewed by the relevant Council concerned.
The purpose of these reviews is to seek to ensure that:
- All electors have reasonable access to voting facilities
- Polling places are accessible to all electors including those with disabilities
The last review undertaken by the Council was in 2011 on the Polling Districts/Places within the Epsom & Ewell Borough Boundaries only.
The 2014 review is now underway and views are invited from electors within the district as well as from persons or bodies with expertise in relation to access to premises or facilities for persons with any form of disability and those representations that were received are available above.
Consultation documents for the 2014 review are available below or at the Town Hall.

Changes outside of Reviews
Changes to polling places/stations can be made outside of a statutory review, if circumstances change to effect existing arrangements. Smaller reviews maybe undertaken at anytime if required. In the event of a change to an existing polling place/station, either permanent or temporary, voters will be notified of the change by the Returning Officer on the official poll card.
