Mobile voting option in Little Cayman

| 17/04/2009

(CNS): Voters in Little Cayman have the option to apply for mobile voting if they are not travelling to Cayman Brac for Election Day, 20 May, but the deadline for applications to be received is 7 May, says Supervisor of Elections Kearney Gomez.. Election Office workers from Cayman Brac will then travel to Little Cayman to operate a mobile polling station on a date to be set, Gomez said. That date will be before 20 May. Application forms for mobile voting should be returned to the Registering Officer for Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, Georgene Lazzari, at PO Box 17, Cayman Brac, KY2-2301.

The application forms can be obtained from the Little Cayman sub-post office. A copy can also be downloaded from the Elections Office website www.electionsoffice.ky Click on Form BA.

Gomez noted that residents of Little Cayman had previously been allowed to vote by postal ballot because there was no polling station set up on that island. However, an amendment to the Elections Law in June 2008 introduced mobile voting, so postal ballots for people in Little Cayman have been done away with unless they will be overseas on Election Day.
