Dear Belfast City Council,

I would like to make an FOI request for voter data from the 12th December 2019 General Election. Specifically, I would like the following info:

- how many people were registered to vote by post in your constituency?
- how many postal votes were received?
- how many votes were marked as invalid?
- what was the result of the postal vote by party? If easier, just including the top 3 parties is fine.

I look forward to your reply.

Yours faithfully,

Donovan Kiddick

FOI, Belfast City Council

Dear Mr Kiddick

 

Thank you for your email dated 28 December 2019 requesting, under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000, information on voter data from the 12
December 2019 General Election.

 

I must advise you that Belfast City Council does not hold the information
you have requested.  This is because in Northern Ireland district
councils, such as Belfast City Council, do not have responsibility for
maintaining an electoral register or co-ordinating General Elections.

 

I can, however, advise you that the Electoral Office for Northern Ireland
(EONI) is responsible for such matters and can be contacted at the
following email address: [1][email address].

 

If you are dissatisfied with how the Council handled your request for
information, you have the right to request that the Council formally
review this decision.  If you wish to do so, please write to the Records
Manager, Information Governance Unit, Legal and Civic Services, Belfast
City Council, City Hall, Belfast, BT1 5GS.

 

Should you remain dissatisfied following the Council's internal review,
you can seek an independent review from the Information Commissioner. 
Requests for an independent review should be made in writing to: The
Information Commissioner, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire,
SK9 5AF.  However, I would advise you that the Information Commissioner
has indicated that a review will not be undertaken unless the Council has
first had an opportunity to re-consider its decision.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Information Governance Unit

Belfast City Council
