Objections to registration

95 Elector’s objection

(1)

Any elector may at any time object to the name of any person being on the roll for any district on the ground that that person is not qualified to be registered as an elector of that district.

(2)

Every such objection—

(a)

shall be made in writing to the Electoral Commission; and

(b)

shall specify—

(i)

the name of the objector; and

(ii)

sufficient particulars to inform the person objected to of the ground for the objection and the reason or reasons supporting the ground for objection.

(3)

Where the Electoral Commission considers that the particulars included in an objection are insufficient to inform the person objected to of the ground for the objection or the reason or reasons supporting that ground, the Electoral Commission must by written notice require the objector to provide within 14 days of the giving of the notice such further particulars as the Electoral Commission thinks fit.

(4)

Where any objector fails to comply with a notice given under subsection (3), the Electoral Commission must give a second such notice to the objector and, if the objector fails to comply with the second such notice, the Electoral Commission must take no further action in relation to the objection and shall notify the objector accordingly.
