Beth made this Official Information request to Electoral Commission

The request was successful.

From: Beth

Dear Electoral Commission,

In a previous OIA request you have indicated Section 263A of the relevant Act allows you to do Data matching to identify ineligible voters

You have indicated previously that in a ten year period over 10,000 voters were deemed ineligible

Could you please provide the following information in line with the Official Information Act?

How is Datamatching completed in regards to process from start to finish? - Is this an automatic process or does it require a person to identify a potentially ineligible voter?

Do electoral commission staff have access to the Immigration system to identify potential voter issues? - If so, what is the level of access

For the period of November 2009 - Present, could you please provide how many people for each electorate were identified as being an ineligible voter and in which year they were identified

What is the average time of identifying an ineligible voter from their first registration as a voter to being struck off?

Yours faithfully,

Beth
