Review of local government boundaries and how they will affect you at this election
During 2015-16 the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) conducted a review on both East Sussex County Council divisions and Hastings Borough ward boundaries.
For the election on Thursday 8th June 2017, the boundaries for the Hastings and Rye constituency must revert back to the ward boundaries that were in force in May 2015.
We realise that this may be confusing as there has already been a recent change to your polling station, due to the local government boundary review, for the East Sussex County Council Elections held in May. However we are bound by electoral law to administer the upcoming election in accordance with existing parliamentary rules and are unable to deviate from this. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
All affected properties were sent a letter informing electors of this change on 8th May 2017.
This means that on Thursday 8th June 2017 you will be voting to elect a new Member of Parliament in the ward in which you would have voted back in May 2015.
