107 Composite rolls

(1)

The Electoral Commission may, from time to time, print a composite roll for each district, which roll—

(a)

shall, subject to any additions, alterations, and deletions made to the electoral roll for the district, contain a list of—

(i)

all persons whose names appear on the main roll for the district; and

(ii)

all persons whose names appear on any existing supplementary roll for the district; and

(iii)

all persons whose names do not appear on the main roll for the district or any existing supplementary roll for the district but are lawfully on the electoral roll for the district on a date to be fixed for the closing of that composite roll by the Electoral Commission; and

(b)

shall, subject to paragraph (a), be printed in the manner prescribed by section 106 in respect of a main roll.

(2)

Notwithstanding anything in subsection (1), in the case of a by-election in any district, the Electoral Commission must cause a composite roll for the district to be closed and printed as at writ day for the by-election.

(3)

Where the date for the closing of a composite roll for a district is writ day in relation to an election in that district, the Electoral Commission

(a)

shall cause the composite roll to be printed as soon as may be after the issue of the writ for the election; and

(b)

shall not be obliged to issue a supplementary roll for the district under the proviso to section 105(1) in relation to that election.

(4)

Where a composite roll for a district is printed under this section,—

(a)

the composite roll shall, notwithstanding section 104(3), be the main roll for the district until a new main roll is printed for the district under section 104(1) or a new composite roll is printed for the district under this section; and

(b)

the main roll and any supplementary rolls that were in force for the district immediately before the date of the closing of the composite roll shall cease to be in force.

(5)

Nothing in this section—

(a)

limits the provisions of section 104(1); or

(b)

prevents any main roll or supplementary roll that is no longer in force from being examined for the purpose of determining—

(i)

whether any person’s name should appear on the main roll or any supplementary roll for the time being in force for any district; or

(ii)

whether any person is qualified to vote in any district as a special voter.
