As speculation mounts concerning when the next general elections will be called, Senior Island Administrator Charles Moss said that voter registration exercises will be going into overdrive.
In December it was reported South Abaco had the lowest voter registration percentage in the country, however, Mr. Moss noted that the beginning of the year has seen an uptick in persons registering at the Administrators office at the Government Complex.
Mr. Moss said that the registration efforts would also extend to the cays once again with one already scheduled for Hope Town on January 21 from 1pm to 2pm at the Public Library.
He said that they will be looking to visit any business with 20 or more employees to help give more opportunities to get registered to vote. He added that they are considering setting up a mobile unit at different high traffic areas to give further opportunities.
Mr. Moss encourages anyone who would like to arrange for a registration drive or need any other information to contact his office at 699-0000.
“It is important to register to have your voice heard, if you don’t register you have no choice,” he said. “I encourage everyone to register and vote.”
