The Voters List is on display today in the vestibules. Those entitled to be on the list are as follows…... ENTITLEMENT TO VOTE (extract from PCI Code) 175.
(1) Voting members in the Church are communicants on the roll of the congregation who are listed, whether by name or number, as having contributed to the stipend or weekly freewill offering of the congregation in the last financial year.
(2) In addition to those so listed the following shall also be qualified, if themselves communicants on the roll -
(a) A wife shall be qualified on a husband’s contribution, and vice versa, where both are communicants. This shall also apply should the contributor himself or herself not be a communicant. If neither husband nor wife in such circumstances is a communicant, then their contribution shall qualify the eldest child, residing in the family, who is on the communicants’ roll.
(b) Should a contributor, who is not a communicant, be a member of a family residing together, then his contribution shall qualify the eldest member residing in the family who is on the communicants’ roll.
(c) Those who have been added to the communicants’ roll of the congregation since the close of the last financial year, upon confirmation by the treasurer that they have contributed during the current year, shall also be qualified voters.
If you have any queries about the list, please contact the Church Office or one of the Elders. Any official objections to any name appearing on the list should be made in writing with reasons and lodged with the Rev George Moore (Moderator of Kirk Session) by Sunday 29 January.
Loving Jesus, loving His word, loving people...
