West Dunbartonshire residents are being encouraged to have their say on proposed changes to polling districts as part of a review.
The Council is carrying out a review of the polling districts and the places where people vote for the next 6 weeks.
Feedback is being sought from residents who use the polling places during elections.
The findings of the consultation will shape where these venues are located for the next five years.
Councillor Daniel Lennie, Convener of Corporate Services, said: “It is vitally important that everyone who wants to vote is able to, so we want to make it as easy as possible.
“In order to make improvements around where people in the area can vote, we need to know where things haven’t worked as well as they should have in the past.
“I would urge you to contribute to the review.”
Councillor Michelle McGinty, Vice Convener of Corporate Services, added: “This review takes place every five years and is really important as it gives us a chance to reflect on feedback and make changes.
“If we know polling places are inconvenient and are given suggestions for alternatives, we can make these improvements.”
