Employers Reminded of Election Day Regulations

Belizeans head to the polls tomorrow for the 2024 municipal elections, and the Elections and Boundaries Department is calling on everyone to follow the law to ensure it goes smoothly. Leading up to the elections, the department has led an education campaign informing the public on the dos and don’ts for Election Day. Chief Elections Officer Josephine Tamai also appeared on our morning show, to give a walkthrough of the process and speak on various matters such as voter eligibility.

Today the department also issued a reminder to employers that it is against the law to prevent any worker from voting on Election Day and can see any guilty employer fined up to two thousand dollars or sentenced up to 12 months in prison.  The government press office released a pre-recording that outlines important information for Election Day that speaks on other areas of the election regulations including but not limited to proxy voting. To further streamline the process, the Elections and Boundaries Department has launched the Belize Municipal Elections 2024 Application. The app, which was developed in collaboration with Total Business Solutions Limited, will provide reliable and timely information on voter turnout as well as the results of tomorrow’s elections. The Belize Municipal Elections 2024 App breaks down the data for each of the nine municipalities and incorporates the department’s Voter Lookup feature which allows voters to confirm their polling station. The app was launched just in time for election day.
