Thank you for the electoral register form you sent to me (which is enclosed as an attachment) in order that I may vote at the forthcoming elections.
Having read this form, I have some questions regarding it's contents, if you would be kind enough to answer ALL of these questions FULLY, I would be most grateful. My questions are as follows:
1/ In the shaded box in the top right hand corner it says "Every person who is entitled to have his/her name included on the Electoral Register has a duty to apply for registration." Would you please explain to me the exact meaning of "person" and the exact meaning of "has a duty to apply for registration".
2/ On the boxed section of the form it says "EVANS Mr Ian Leslie". Is there any particular or significant reason why it says this? and why it is that the printed words are in such order?
3/ The form also requires me to "complete using black ink and CAPITAL LETTERS". Why would this be? and for what purpose?
4/ I see that some of the words and phrases are either in brackets, or inverted comma's, could you please explain to me the significance of this, if any?
5/ In the boxed section, I have noticed that all the boxes are closed. Is there any particular significance attached to this? and if so, what exactly is that significance? Are there any reasons why these boxes cannot be opened?
6/ In the boxed section it also states the word "Surname" I do not have a Surname, I have a family name. What should I therefore enter in this particular box?
7/ In the boxed section it also states the word "Fornames" I do not have Forenames, I have christian names. What should I therefore enter in this particular box?
8/ The most perplexing section of all though is the "DATE OF BIRTH" box, this really threw me! This being a Government form and (as far as I am aware) is legally required to be filled in truthfully and honestly. Furthermore, I also understand that I am liable to penalty/prosecution if I knowingly/willingly enter false information. I ask you Sir, how do I truly and honestly know when I was born? I was not able to count at my birth, I was not able to read at my birth, the only testament to my date of birth is the hearsay of others. This being wholly true, I am therefore unwittingly liable to penalty/prosecution through no fault of my own!!!
I would be grateful Sir, for your full, accurate, and complete answers to my valid questions at your earliest convenience. It appears we have little time before I am possibly cheated out of my God given common law right to vote.
