postal voting instructions_1.jpg(CNS): With just three weeks to go before the Cayman Islands goes to the polls to decide on how it will vote in future elections, the Elections Office says registered voters have two more weeks to apply for a postal ballot or to be treated as mobile voter. The deadline is 6 July and officials warned after that electors will have to go to the poll to have their vote count.

    I don't understand. I voted in the last elections. Why do I have to register again to vote this time for the one man one vote?  Don't they have a record of my name?

      You don't have to register again. The article above is only for people who are off island, can't leave the house etc and want to vote.

    I understand that two of the designated voting stations had to be moved to alternate sites for the referandum because of a conflict in dates with Vacation Bible School – John Gray Memorial Church Hall and Church of Christ.  Can anyone say where the alternate sites are? Would be good for voters to know where to go, you think?
