FOI Request - Confirmation of Name and NI Number
• With the scheme to migrate voters over to individual electoral registration, how many people have been sent letters since September 2014 asking for confirmation of their name and national insurance number, because their details did not cross match with existing DWP (Department of Work and Pensions) data?
• If possible, can you please give me a breakdown of where these letters were sent, by postcode (i.e. G41 0TZ: 10, G42 0TY: 21)? If privacy of individuals is a concern, then just the outward code (the first part of the postcode) would be satisfactory.
This information is not held and is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. You may wish to contact the Electoral Registration Office whose contact details are -
