Northgate calls for accurate data to underpin new online record of electors

Accurate data should be at the heart of the new Co-ordinated Online Record of Electors (CORE), according to Northgate Information Solutions.

In a response to the Department of Constitutional Affairs’ consultation on the development of CORE, Northgate stressed the importance of accuracy to maintaining the integrity of the system and sustaining public trust.

The current proposals allow potentially inaccurate information to be held within the system, pending action by local electoral registration officers. Northgate recommends that action should be taken to resolve any inaccuracies before the information is entered.

Speaking today, David Meaden, Managing Director of Northgate Public Services, said:

“An effective and efficient electoral management system is essential to our modern democracy. As we look to use more sophisticated voting methods to deliver a more responsive system, we increasingly need a robust and secure national record of those registered to vote.

“CORE should be underpinned by accurate data. Northgate has called for any anomalies within the data to be addressed before they are entered into CORE. This is essential to securing support for the system and sustaining faith in its operation.”
