Parish Electoral Roll
The Parish Electoral Roll
If you are a supporter of the church, whether or not you attend regularly, please consider joining the electoral roll.
The roll is updated every year before the Annual Parochial Church Meeting. Please ask the Rector or a churchwarden for a form, or pick one up from any of our churches, and return it to the Parish Electoral Roll Officer, c/o the Rectory.
While all residents of the parish can vote for churchwardens, the other positions are elected by people on the church electoral roll (this is not the same as the North and South Kesteven rolls).
An Application for Enrolment on the Church Electoral Roll can be found in your church or can be downloaded by clicking on the pdf at the bottom of this page.
A revision of the Electoral Roll is done every year unless a new Electoral Roll is required, this is only needed every 6 years. For more details on Preparation of a new Electoral Roll or on the Revision of the Electoral Roll please see below.
Preparation of a new Electoral Roll
Every six years, every parish is required by law to prepare a new Electoral Roll, and this was last done in 2019 and won't be necessary again until 2025.
Inclusion in a new Electoral Roll is not automatic - the new roll is created from scratch. Everyone must apply to be included on a new Electoral Roll and needs to complete an Application for Enrolment form.
The deadline for receipt of all 2019 applications was 1 April 2019, after which the new Electoral Roll was prepared.
This year and every year until 2025 there will be a Revision of the Electoral Roll.
Revision of the Electoral Roll
The electoral roll is revised annually. The only people who need to fill in an application form are those who have recently moved into the parish, joined the church, or reached the age of 16.
Notices were displayed advising the Church Electoral Roll of the South Lafford parish was to be be revised by the Parochial Church Council, beginning on Sunday the 29th day of March 2020, and ending on Sunday the 5th day of April 2020 but the Electoral Roll Revision 2020 has now been postponed. New dates will be published once known.
After the revision, a copy of the Roll will be published by the Parochial Church Council or near to, the principal door of the Parish Church for inspection for at least 14 days and a copy of the Roll will be available for inspection on a reasonable request being made to the Council. The published roll will include every name but no other personal details.
