Revised voters list to be released

The Elections Office will publish its latest revised voters list on Tuesday, 21 Jan.

In the Revised Register of Electors, which is set to become effective on 1 April, there are 21,782 registered voters.

The new list reflects an additional 462 voters who have registered since 1 Oct., and 62 voters who were removed from the previous list, including 53 who died since the last revision, according to the Elections Office. Registration for the new revised list closed on 2 Jan.

The Elections Office is now asking people who registered to vote between 1 Oct. 2019 and 2 Jan. 2020 to review the list on its website (www.elections.ky) or in print at post offices.

The office is also encouraging the public to review the list for invalid entries or outdated information, such as cases where a voter has moved to a different electoral district or may no longer be residing in the Cayman Islands.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 Feb.

Once the revised list is finalised, it will become the Official Register of Electors on 1 April, according to a statement from the Elections Office.

“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,” the Elections Office statement continued.

Individuals who have claims in relation to applications submitted during the last registration period are asked to email the Elections Office at [email protected] or phone 949-8047.
