ABEC says wait for voter’s card should be no more than 3-4 months depending on time of registration

3

Elisa Graham, the public relations officer (PRO) of the Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC), says she is unaware that persons have had to wait up to half a year to get their voter-identification cards.

However, many people have complained about a six-month wait after going through the process of registration.

But, depending on when persons registered, Graham says the wait time is between three and four months for their names to appear on the voters’ list and for cards to be printed.

  1. This is partly why (along with persons misplacing their cards and waiting too long to have it replaced) said card should not be required in order for persons to vote. Any government issued picture ID should be accepted. Requiring it will simply risk a bottleneck and a repeat of the 2009 fiasco

    • I agree , the voter card is not needed. If there is a list then all a voter has to do is show proper Government issued ID, DL, Passport. Take the money that is being wasted and give it to pensioner’s and or build a wheelchair ramp for entrance to the Hospital back lot….MONEY WASTED
