What is the Church Electoral roll?
In the Church of England, it is a parish’s register of electors; it is the list of those qualified to vote at the annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) where the elections take place for The Parochial Church Council (The PCC), and the parish’s representatives on the Deanery Synod.
The Electoral Roll is also our membership list, the number we can count upon as committed members of our Parish.
The more formal information: The Church Electoral Roll must be accurately kept. To achieve accuracy the roll is revised annually, and the new Roll is reported at the APCM. The Roll is used to determine eligibility for attendance and participation at the annual parochial church meeting and for election to the parochial church council. It is also used to determine eligibility for election to the deanery, diocesan and general synods. In addition, it is used for the calculation of the number of representatives who may be elected to each of these synods in the following year.
