Electoral Roll

The Electoral Roll should be reviewed and renewed annually. 

Once every six years, each PCC is required to prepare a completely new Electoral Roll, which means that everyone must be removed from the existing Roll and re-apply. The next occasion for the preparation of a new Electoral Roll is in 2025.  The Parish Resources website also provides details for the preparation of the Electoral Roll.
