Under rolling registration, electors can be added, deleted and amended as required each month.
The rolling register runs from January to September each year.
The following tables is the monthly alterations to the Electoral Register since publication of the Register on 1 December 2017.
1 December 2017
|2 January 2018||56||1,406||974||2,436|
|1 February 2018||76||1,503||1,132||2,711|
|1 March 2018||193||1,159||823||2,175|
|3 April 2018||222||1,892||1,596||3,710|
|1 May 2018||162||1,099||269||1,530|
|1 June 2018||33||1,497||1,781||3,311|
Changes are where we have made alterations to the way details are shown on the register, for example:
Deletions show the number of electors removed from the register because the electors have moved, died or were incorrectly entered onto the register.
Additions show the number of new electors added to the register. This is because they have recently moved to the property or they were already living at the property but for some reason their names were not included.
The monthly electorate total shows the number of registered electors in the Borough each month. This takes into account those electors who have been added and deleted but should not be taken as eligible electorate for a specific election type and date.
|1 December 2017||143,442|
|1 January 2018||143,008|
|1 February 2018||142,638|
|1 March 2018||142,974|
|3 April 2018||143,276|
|1 May 2018||144,106|
|1 June 2018||143,822|
We are required by the Local Government Act 2000 to publish the minimum number of signatures of local electors needed to support a valid petition requiring the Council to hold a referendum on whether or not the Borough should have a directly elected Mayor.
This figure, known as the verification number, must be 5% of local government electors. The current verification number is 6,977. This will not change until February 2019.
