Software Aids in Electoral Register Compliancy

9th July 2008, Old Woking, Surrey – Gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets are helping to achieve the realisation of electoral modernisation through the provision of software that allows the matching of electoral registers to the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG).

Reacting to a Ministry of Justice (MoJ) directive stating that all electoral registers must be formatted to UK address standard BS7666, Aligned Assets have issued the latest version of their Symphony iMatch software to facilitate this formatting.

The directive states that by 1st December 2009 Electoral Registration Officers in all local authorities must convert their address data to BS7666 standards and ensure the inclusion of a Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) against each address.

Symphony iMatch allows for automatic matching of the electoral register against the authorities’ Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG), which enables the process to be left without input whilst the vast majority of the matching is done. Once this process is completed an interactive mode can be activated for the manual matching of the remaining data.

Speaking of the MoJ directive, Commercial Director at Aligned Assets, Phil Gee explained, “We see this as the first movement toward the compulsory standardisation of all local authority address data. Rather than engaging expensive data matching companies, iMatch offers a solution that can be used time and time again for only one fee. It will allow for all local authority address data to be brought in line with the BS7666 standard quickly and easily.”

Alongside its powerful address matching capability, iMatch also facilitates the geocoding of address data and incorporates a user-friendly search engine for locating addresses within the LLPG.
