As part of its ongoing public education programme, the Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC), wishes to advise that the Supplementary List and List C will now be available electronically on a monthly basis.
The afore mentioned documents for the month of July are presently available on the Commission’s website www.abec.gov.ag.
Section 28 (5) of the Representation of the People (Amendment) Act 2002 stipulates that:
“The Commission shall publish the supplementary list of electors registered under the continuous registration system monthly and shall cause to be prepared and published as soon as possible there after and in any case, not later than the 15th day of the following month”.
The Supplementary List facilitates the process of claims and objections for first time applicants.
In regards to the List C, as provided in the Representation of the People (Amendment) Act 2002, Section 8 (2), this is the “list to be prepared by the Registration Officer, of persons who have ceased to be qualified as electors or whose qualifications have been altered, that is to say, persons who being registered in the register in force, have ceased to be qualified for registration in such registration unit”. This includes the names of persons who are deceased and applicants for transfers.
Elisa Graham, ABEC’S Public Relations Officer, encourages persons to utilize the website as an avenue to access pertinent information to include: the functions, operations of ABEC, the procedures involved in the registration and electoral processes as well as the location of the Registration Units.
