Chief Electoral Officer for Northern Ireland Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Chief Electoral Officer for Northern,

Before I ask you to provide information under FOI, I would like to find out the quality of information you are willing to provide.

I would like to obtain for the general election 2017 information on individual proxy / postal votes.

I would like to know what would be the most accurate level of information (full address / street / postcode / ward ... etc) you would be willing to provide before asking you to provide that information as the level you provide may not be sufficient for the analysis that I wish to perform and therefore I would not wish you to carry out the collation work if the information will be of no use.

For you to understand more, the analysis I would like to perform. I would like to analyse where in constituencies these Postal/Proxy votes are coming from - is there consistency across constituencies or is there hot spots of Postal/Proxy voting. I therefore may need to know the eligible votes for the same level.

So if you were willing to provide by ward I would hope this would be provided.

Postcode / Postal / Proxy / Eligible Votes in Postcode

BT1 1AA / 1 / 2 / 40

Ideally I want you to use as little effort as possible to provide information - so what ever you could provide I would want you to just be able to remove this as a report from your systems - otherwise this for you would be an exceptional amount of effort.

Yours faithfully,

Gary Clarke

Dear McGrattan, Claire,

Many thanks for taking the time to respond. Due to the level of information this would not be sufficient to carry out the analysis I would like to complete and therefore this no further response is necessary.

Yours sincerely,

Gary Clarke
