Preparation for the New Church Electoral Roll 2019- St Helen's, Abingdon-on-Thames

The Electoral Roll is the basic list in every parish of all those entitled to vote in elections within the Church of England. Those entitled to have their names on this roll have to be 16 years of age or over and must reside in the relevant parish or be regular worshippers in the church whose roll they wish to join. Every six years, a new roll has to be prepared at which point all existing members have to re-apply for membership or else their names will not be included on the new Roll. This ensures that the Roll is kept current and up to date. Preparation for a new Roll will be taking place during February and March this year, so everyone who regularly attends a church or churches in our Parish is requested to apply for enrolment on the Church Electoral Roll.

Application Forms for completion are available from the Church Office or from the three churches in the Parish, St. Michaels, St. Nicholas and St. Helen’s. Each Church has a designated Electoral roll officer who will be coordinating this process.”
