registered voters vote at the same polling station. The number of electors
in a polling district can be widely variable from several thousands

Areas are comprised of a number of Polling Districts. The number varies
depending on geography, population and the type of election. A local
council electoral ward typically comprise 2-4 polling districts; a parliamentary
constituency may comprise 4 - 10 wards and a European multi-member region
can comprise over 70 constituencies. With the exception of islands these

within each ward in which the election is taking place. Within each
Polling district the information shown will be in the format of Polling
District Initial(s), Poll Number, Street by House Number, Surname, Name
Initial, Date of 18th Birthday (if the elector turns 18 during the period
of the register). The streets are listed alphabetically but are broken
down by postcode so there may be a number of sub-streets for each street.
