Electoral rolls

101 Electoral rolls

(1)

Where a notice is gazetted under section 40(1)(b) or section 45(9)(b), the Electoral Commission shall—

(a)

decide, on the basis of the then existing rolls, which of the electors are entitled to be registered as electors of each electoral district whose boundaries are fixed by the report to which the notice relates; and

(b)

compile for each electoral district whose boundaries are fixed by the report to which the notice relates a list of persons appearing to be entitled to be registered as electors of that electoral district (in this section called the compiled list).

(2)

For the purposes of any inquiry under section 89D which is considered before the dissolution or expiration of the Parliament in existence when any list is compiled pursuant to subsection (1)(b), the compiled list shall be the electoral roll for the district to which it relates.

(3)

For the purposes of the printing of the main rolls and the supplementary rolls, each compiled list shall, if the Electoral Commission so directs, be the electoral roll for the district to which it relates.

(4)

Where a compiled list is, under subsection (2) or subsection (3), the electoral roll for the district to which it relates, that electoral roll shall come into force on the dissolution or expiry of the then existing Parliament.

(5)

The compiled lists shall be compiled immediately before—

(a)

the next succeeding inquiry under section 89D; or

(b)

the printing of the main rolls (where the Electoral Commission directs that, for the purposes of the printing of the main rolls and the supplementary rolls, each compiled list shall be the electoral roll for the district to which it relates),—

whichever is the earlier.

(6)

Every roll to which subsection (4) applies, as it may be updated from time to time following an inquiry under section 89D, continues in force until a new roll for the district is compiled and comes into force.

(7)

The Electoral Commission must keep every roll to which subsection (4) applies up to date by making all such additions, alterations, and deletions as become necessary.
