Councillor Melvin Cohen – Polling Stations


The Chairman invited Councillor Melvin Cohen to present his item


Councillor Melvin Cohen outlined the issues as set out in his Members Item.  He reported that this was an ongoing problem for the orthodox Jewish community in some wards.  In relation to some polling stations, alternative venues had been proposed. 


The Assistant Director Assurance, Emily Bowler, advised the Committee that the representation would be considered as part of the polling station review which would start in September and report to committee in January 2023.  Members requested that all Members be consulted as part of the review. 


The Committee noted and agreed with this approach.


RESOLVED that the Member’s Item and action were noted.
