Please sign this petition if you believe that local authorities should be prevented from using schools as polling stations.

Due to safeguarding issues, when schools are required to give up space onsite to use as a polling station, the entire school is forced to close. This not only affects the children but also has a significant knock on effect on working parents required to find childcare solutions.

Particularly in a year when so much school time has been lost, but also in general, we believe that local authorities should be required to find other spaces to use as polling stations which do not have such a significant and negative impact on children.
