We're reviewing polling arrangements across Sheffield, which might include changes to polling station locations in some council wards. We think the places we are suggesting will make voting easier and have less impact on schools.
We're proposing to make changes in these wards:
- Broomhill and Sharrow Vale
- Crookes and Crosspool
- East Ecclesfield
- Firth Park
- Gleadless Valley
- Nether Edge and Sharrow
- Shiregreen and Brightside
When proposing moving polling stations we have considered:
- suitability and availability of the existing station
- feedback given by members of the public, elected members and others
- accessibility for people with disabilities
- provision of reasonable facilities
- minimising disruption to schools
You can read the polling district consultation paper to see all of our proposed changes.
Give us your feedback
If you're registered to vote in Sheffield we'd like to hear from you, particularly if you live in one of the affected wards. You can tell us what you think of our proposals and offer your own suggestions by taking part in our review of polling station districts and places.
When you take the survey you will see the proposed changes for the ward you want to comment on.
We can accept responses online or by email to email@example.com. You can also submit them by post to Electoral Services, Town Hall, Pinstone Street, Sheffield, S1 2HH. Please contact us for a paper version of the consultation document and a response form if you need one.

What happens when the review is finished
We will publish:
- the results of the review
- the minutes of council meetings concerning the review
- all correspondence received in connection with the review
- all representations made by any person in connection with the review
Role of the Electoral Commission
We are following guidance issued by the Electoral Commission in undertaking the review. Although the Electoral Commission has no role in the review process itself, it can consider comments if people do not think that the review has met the reasonable requirements of electors or taken sufficient account of the needs of disabled electors.
The following people can make representations to the Electoral Commission:
- 30 or more registered electors
- any person who made comments during the review
- any parish council or parish meeting for the area
- any non-elector who the Commission feels has sufficient interest in the accessibility of disabled persons
The Electoral Commission can direct the council to make alterations to polling places if it thinks that is necessary.
