  • Additions are re-registering electors who moved house or had for some other reason not been currently registered at their address.
  • Deletions are electors removed from the register (usually because of a change of address).
  • Changes are where we have made alterations to the way details are shown on the register, such as name changes due to marriage.

Mayoral Petition Notice

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 6,731. This will not change until February 2016.
