Applications for mobile voting also accepted
The Elections Office advises all Cayman Islands voters who wish to apply to be treated as postal or mobile electors that applications can be submitted at this time.
The last date for applications to be received from electors seeking to vote by postal ballot or mobile polling is Thursday, 9 May.
All students who have registered and who will be overseas on Election Day – 22 May – are urged to apply early in order to ensure that they are on the list for the first issue of postal ballots after Nomination Day, 27 March.
Forms can be found on the Elections Office’s website at www.electionsoffice.ky. The appropriate form is Form B.
Voters who may have travel plans already and who will be off island on Election Day should also take advantage of this option.
The option of mobile voting is also available for those who need it.
It applies to those electors who are unable or likely to be unable to go in person to the polling station because they are likely to be in a hospital, rest home or other similar institution or because they are geriatrics at home.
The Elections Office urges them to apply early to be treated as mobile electors on the prescribed Form C. The elderly and other physically challenged electors are particularly asked to take advantage of this opportunity.
Electors who will not be able to go in person to the polling station because of the general nature of their occupation, service or employment may apply to be treated as mobile voters.
