A completely new Electoral Roll is being drawn up this year
…..if you want to be on it Read More
The Church Electoral Roll is a register of those over 16 years of age who attend St Robert’s Church on a regular basis. It is being totally renewed this year so even if you are on the current roll, you need to complete a new application form.
It is totally different from the civil, public electoral roll – you need to be on the Church Electoral Roll in order to vote at the Annual Parochial Church meeting or hold an official Church post – e.g. Churchwarden, PCC member.
The deadline for voting in this year’s APCM is April 14th, 2019 after which registration will be closed until after the APCM on April 28th.
Registration forms are available from the office or Dianne Butterfield the Electoral Roll Officer firstname.lastname@example.org
