Voters across Carrick will soon be heading to different places to cast their votes after South Ayrshire Council agreed to a change in 

At a meeting on Thursday, February 13, councillors agreed to the changes that had been set out following a lengthy review process.

The agreement means that voters in Girvan districts will no longer go to Girvan Primary School on election days as of the European Elections on May 22 this year.

Instead, various churches in the town will be used after the review of polling places.

Voters in polling districts S802 and S803 in Girvan will vote in the Girvan North Parish Church Hall.

Voters in the districts S804, S811 and S813 will now vote in the South Parish Church Hall, while those registered in S812 will cast their ballot in the 
Sacred Heart Church Hall.

Maybole voters in S707, S716 and S717 will now vote in the Carrick Centre instead of Gardenrose Primary, and those who currently vote at St Cuthbert Primary School will now need to go to Maybole Town Hall.

The only change in the villages is voters registered at Maidens Primary School will now vote at the bowling club.

For voters in Barr, Barrhill, Ballantrae, Colmonell, Crosshill, Dunure, Kirkmichael, Kirkoswald, Lendalfoot, Minishant and Straiton, there will be no changes to the current polling station arrangements as the current premises in these villages are the most suitable available.
