Elections & Boundaries encourages eligible persons to participate in re-registration

2 min read

The re-registration exercise is set to begin on Monday, July 2. A release from the Elections and Boundaries Department states that the traditional buildings used as polling stations will be used as registration centers. Efforts are being made not to use high schools since, in most cases; these buildings are used for summer classes and workshops. As was mentioned previously by the Chief Elections Officer, all centers will be manned by Temporary Assistant Registering Officers who have been recruited by the Ministry of the Public Service. These centers will be opened from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Mondays to Fridays, and 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays. Investigations will be conducted every day of the week. Registration centers will be closed at the end of August and the Elections and Boundaries Department Registration Offices countrywide will be utilized for the ongoing re-registration exercise. After the mass registration is completed a register of electors will be published. Fourteen days will be allowed for objections and rectification of particulars, after which they would be revised by the courts.  Normal registration will then continue with monthly supplementary lists being added to the register. As by law, political parties are given the opportunity to have scrutineers at the registration centers to observe the registration process. The release ends by encouraging all eligible persons to participate in the re-registration exercise.
