As with all local authorities in Scotland, we have a number of multi-member wards electing Councillors under the Single Transferable Vote System.
The 7 wards are:
- Stirling North
- Dunblane & Bridge of Allan
- Forth & Endrick
- Stirling East
- Stirling West
- Trossachs and Teith
A polling district is the area created by the division of a Ward into smaller parts, so that electors can be allocated to a polling place where they can vote. The polling place is the building within which voting is carried out. Depending on the number of electors, there may be several rooms used for voting, each one is called a polling station.
