Re-registration Final Update: 130,792 Applications Received

The mass re-registration is over with a total of one hundred and thirty thousand, seven hundred and ninety-two applications received by the Elections and Boundaries Department over the three month period. During the last week of re-registration, that is between September twenty-third and thirtieth, six thousand, three hundred and seventy-six applications were submitted. The total figure represents sixty-three point seven eight percent of registered electors prior to the commencement of the re-registration exercise. All the applications that meet the qualifications for registration will be published in the New Registers of Electors; after which the revision of the Registers will be held. This means that anyone who wants to object to any name on the list will be able to do so in fourteen days. The objection will be revised by the courts which will decide whether or not the application meets all requirements. Registration continues and anyone who would want to participate in the April tenth referendum next year will need to register no later than March tenth, 2019.
