Residents qualified to vote were making sure Monday that they meet Tuesday’s deadline to confirm their names on current Voters List.
Last Thursday, Friday and Saturday long lines of persons confirming that their names are on the current list, registering for the first time having attained 18 years of age and meeting the necessary qualification or picking up their National Identification Cards were maintained throughout the day outside the Electoral Office on Central Street in Basseterre.
The deadline for the Voter Confirmation Exercise which began on December 27th 2007 is September 30th 2008.
The electoral reform process, which began two years ago, is expected to result in a new Voters List, a national identification card and the introduction of a photo id when registering for the first time.
In August 2006, the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis presented a White Paper in the lawmaking body outlining the process for electoral reform and the preferred steps through which consultation with stakeholders and implementation of electoral reform will result in a legally reformed electoral system.
