Interim review of polling districts and polling places 2022

Following the latest ward boundary review published in July 2022 by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE), new ward boundaries have been drawn up for Blackpool. You can view the new boundaries on the LGBCE website

We are now reviewing the locations of the polling districts and polling places to make sure that polling districts and polling stations are in the right places for the new wards. The new ward boundaries will be used for next year’s local elections.

The boundary review may mean that the ward you vote in has changed. It also means that your polling station may change, so you may be voting in a different place in the 2023 local elections.

The review will be a two stage consultation

  • First stage will be from 20 September 2022 until 10 October 2022
  • Second stage will be from 14 October 2022 until 28 October 2022
