Every Church of England Church across the country keeps an ‘Electoral Roll’. Officially it is the register of its voting members – those qualified to attend and to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.
However the Electoral Roll is much more than that!
Being on the Electoral Roll is a way of saying...’I belong’. It is an act of commitment to Deane Parish Church. A way of saying that you see yourself as a member.
You can apply to be on the Electoral Roll if:
- You are baptised, and
- You are over the age of 16; and
- You live within Deane Parish or you have worshipped regularly at Deane Parish Church for at least six months.
If you are currently on the electoral roll you don’t need to reapply. Unless your circumstances change and you are no longer eligible to be on the roll then your name will remain on the roll until 2025 when a full revision takes place.
You can view the current electoral roll here.
If you are not currently on the roll, but would like to apply then you can complete the form below.
Every adult has to complete an individual form. You cannot complete one per couple or family.
You can must complete this form no later than Saturday 3rd October.
If you have any questions then please contact Margaret Rutter, our Electoral Roll Officer, via the Church Office.
