The Elections Office has finalised figures on the Revised Register of Electors (Voter’s List), which is set to become effective on 1 April 2020, subject to objections or claims raised during the revision period.
The list will be published on 21 January 2020 with a total of 21,782 registered voters. This reflects an additional 462 voters who were added to the list as well as 62 ineligible voters who were removed from the previous list, including 53 registered voters who died since the previous revision. Registration for the Revised Register of Electors closed on 2 January 2020.
The Elections Office asks individuals who registered to vote between 1 October 2019 and 2 January 2020 to review the list on the Elections Office website (www.elections.ky) or in print at post offices. Individuals who have claims in relation to applications submitted during the last registration period are asked to contact the Elections via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (+1 (345) 949 8047).
The Elections Office also encourages the public to review the list for invalid entries or outdated information, such as cases where a voter has moved to a different electoral district or may no longer be residing in the Cayman Islands.
The deadline for submitting claims and objections is 11 February 2020.
As per the Elections Law, once the current Revised List is finalised, the revised list will become the Official Register of Electors on 1 April 2020.
The Elections Office reminds those wanting to register to vote, that they can register at any time. The deadline to be included in the next Official Register of Electors list (which will be effective from 1 July 2020), is 1 April 2020.
