Elections Office offers mail, mobile voting

The Elections Office reminds voters that the period during which they may request postal ballots or mobile voting is under way and will continue until close of business Friday, May 12.

Voters who will be away from the Cayman Islands on Election Day may request a postal ballot by filling out Form B, available at www.elections.ky, and email the completed form, along with proof of travel plans to [email protected]

Those who will be in Cayman but unable to attend the polls may apply for mobile voting using Form C, also available from www.elections.ky. Elections Office polling staff will visit applicants in person, or facilitate their vote before polling day at an early voting station.

Nomination requirements

The Elections Office also reminds people seeking to be nominated on Wednesday, March 29, as candidates in the May general election that they must fulfill a number of requirements, including:

Submitting a 2” x 2” photo which clearly shows their face, to be included on the ballot paper

Handing in a cash deposit of $1,000 with their nominations form, and

Having two voters from the electoral district in which they are seeking office sign their nomination form.

The 19 nomination stations will be open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. only.

Candidates are further urged to review the Constitution and the Elections Law to ensure they are qualified to be nominated, a press release states.
