Notice of revision of the Register of Electors
This page is about the revision of the Register of Electors in-line with the new County Council boundaries.
Following the 2012 review of polling districts, polling places and polling stations, the Register of Electors will be revised to take account of the new County Council boundaries. Details of the new boundaries can be found below.
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England have reviewed the electoral divisions for Surrey County Council (LGBC website). They have amended the current boundaries so that each county ward has approximately the same population and each County Councillor represents approximately the same number of people. The changes will take effect for the County Council elections on 2 May 2013.
Previously, the polling districts of Reigate & Banstead Borough Council have matched the same boundaries as the Surrey County Council electoral divisions. As the changes made by the Boundary Commission mean that this will no longer be the case, we are reviewing the Borough Council polling districts. We have proposed changes in 6 wards, with the aim of aligning the polling districts with the new Surrey County Council divisions.
Different polling stations
There are no properties that will be moved into a different electoral ward. However, the boundaries between some polling districts are recommended for change. As a result, some properties will be required to vote at a different polling station.
Details of the proposals
The following wards are subject to proposed changes:
Chipstead, Hooley and Woodmansterne
Kingswood and Burgh Heath
Meadvale and St. John's
Earlswood and Whitebushes
The following wards are not subject to any proposed changes:
This review of all polling districts, polling places and polling stations is in accordance with the requirements of the Representation of the People Act 1983, as amended by the Electoral Administration Act 2006.
