Continuous Registration

Register to Vote, It Is Your Right

Continuous Registration is the process whereby the Voters’ List is continually maintained by adding the names of eligible voters as well as deleting the names of those who no longer meet eligibility requirements e.g. the dead.

This means there is no need to automatically conduct a full enumeration/registration as was the case in previous years. A voters’ list is now produced and published every six months, May 31 and November 30, with the necessary additions and deletions. There is a cut off date for registration which is two months before the publication of the voter’s list.

Requirements for Registration

Persons who are eighteen (18) years and over and who are not subject to any legal incapacity are able to get registered. Persons not eligible to be registered are convicted persons detained in pursuance of their sentences, persons on suspended sentences, persons certified as insane and lunatics as well as persons detained as criminal lunatics.

How to Register

Visit your Constituency Office Monday - Thursday 8:30am – 4:30pm & Friday 8:30am - 3:30pm. It is suggested that you bring the following:

    * Proof of Age
    * Proof of Residence

You will be visited at your home for residence verification shortly after your visit to the office.
