Electoral Roll Revision 2019
2019 is a year for the preparation of a completely new Electoral Roll for the Ecclesiastical (Church of England) Parish. The Parish’s electoral roll starts again from scratch, meaning that everyone who wishes to be on the roll needs to apply, and old lists of electors are redundant.
The electoral roll acts as a “membership list” for churchgoers in the parish, and gives entitlement to vote at the Annual Parochial Council Meeting, (APCM), or stand for office as Churchwarden or PCC/DCC member.
Church rules for the preparation of the new roll are very specific. In our case the notice for preparation of the roll will be published in early February, and over the following two weeks congregations at Sunday services will be informed of the preparation of the new roll.
Roll application forms will be available at each church, or by contacting John Sparke on 01748 884047. The preparation of the roll will be completed towards the end of March and exhibited in churches for at least two weeks before the APCM on 10 April 2019.
