Change in Policy for Collection of ID Cards


As part of ongoing efforts to encourage newly registered voters to collect their Voter’s ID Cards, the Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC) has initiated a change in the policy for this process.

At its most recent meeting on Wednesday, the seven-member body decided that a person can now use any form of Government issued identification to collect their Voter ID Card, where the Registration Certificate (receipt) is unavailable.

In this regard, the practice of visiting the Head Office on Queen Elizabeth Highway, to collect a copy of the mentioned certificate is officially discontinued.

All Registration Units have been notified of this change and will be guided accordingly.

  1. Let me hear what the conspiracy theorists gonna come up with because of this new policy.

  2. No wonder Gaston Browne is moving the “election voting” goalposts.

    Now all the 4,000 additional immigrants have to do is produce their newly issued passports to receive their ID-voting cards – AND BOOM💥 ABLP BACK IN POWER FOR A THIRD TERM.

    This can’t be right, and so unethical to try and win an election by any means!


    • How ridiculous some of these UPP supporters can be? How can the decision made by ABEC affect one party more than the other? It look as though they think with their feet.

  3. Making it easier on the voters cannot be a partisan issue. This issue of the immigrants is a completely different matter.
