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 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 last review undertaken by the Council was in 2011 on the Polling Districts/Places within the Epsom & Ewell Borough Boundaries only.
The purpose of the review was 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 consultation closed at 5pm on 12 August 2011 and a report was presented to the Strategy and Resources committee on 15 November 2011. Following that committee a recommendation went to the Council meeting on 13 December 2011. Minutes of the Strategy and Resources and Council meeting can also be viewed.
The outcome of the review resulted in no changes to any of the existing Polling Districts at this time however there is an electoral review of Surrey County Council division boundaries currently being undertaken which may result in some changes at a later date. It was agreed to change one Polling Place in West Ewell ward and this new polling place will be used at all future elections held in the Borough with immediate effect.
For any queries, please telephone 01372 732000 and ask to speak to Electoral Services.
Changes outside of Reviews
Changes to polling 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 station, either permanent or temporary, voters will be notified of the change by the Returning Officer on the official poll card.
