(CMR) The Elections Office has issued reminders to the voting public to ensure voting is a smooth exercise for all electors. Supervisor of Elections Wesley Howell reiterates that his office is continuing to work diligently to ensure that the voting process is smooth for every single voter.
He urges electors to exercise their democratic right and cast their ballots on Wednesday, 14 April 2021- Election Day. “Remember – your vote counts,” he added.
“Polls will open sharply at 7 am across the three islands and close at 6 pm. If there are voters still in line after 6 pm, they will all be able to vote – no one in line will be turned away,” Howell emphasised.
“The Elections Office is fully geared, ready, and looking forward to providing efficient service to all voters,” he noted.
