VOTING at the polling station, to have a say in who represents your town, village or city on the county council, is important to making your opinions on local issues heard.

In Denbighshire, there are 65 polling stations for the 30 county council electoral wards, represented by one or more councillors - depending on the number of eligible voters - who are selected every five years.

The polling stations need to be situated in places that allow all residents to vote, regardless of age, disability or method of transport. However the location might need to change, if there are, for example, new housing developments or services that have closed.

Denbighshire County Council (DCC) has launched a review of its polling stations to ensure that they remain suitable, and it wants to hear your views.

A spokesperson for DCC said: “The council has a statutory duty to designate a polling place for each district. It also has a statutory duty to keep these arrangements under review.

“Our aim in this review is to ensure the network of polling districts and polling places are as convenient and effective for voting purposes as possible.

"We have found the location and facilities provided by the districts and network of stations we have are well-received by the electorate with very few complaints about accessibility or location. However, circumstances can change and the public consultation invites comments on a number of potential changes.”

The consultation closes on August 9.
