Noted increase on preliminary voters list


Share post:

As of the end of last month, 257 995 electors were on the preliminary list of registered voters, compiled by the Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

The list had been printed at the end of April this year, and the cut-off date would have been a month earlier, on March 26.

NATIONNEWS understands that though this is not the finalised list, it is 8 971 more than the number of registered voters in the 2013 elections and 8 971 more than the numbers who went to the polls in 2008.

The final list for the May 24 General Election will be produced on May 18 and in the interim, residents are advised to visit the various centres to check if their names are present.

Registration closed on Monday and no new names can be added. (ROG)
