Objection Hearings To Begin In Late March, Says Supervisor Of Elections
Basseterre, St. Kitts, February 17, 2022 (Nevis Island Administration) — Supervisor of Elections for St. Kitts and Nevis Elvin Bailey has informed that hearings for objections to persons on the Annual Register of Voters for 2022 are being scheduled to begin late in March.
The Annual Register of Voters for 2022, published on January 31, 2022, lists persons on St. Kitts and Nevis who were registered to vote up until November 30, 2021.
At the end of the objection period, there was a total of 590 objections for the eight constituencies on St. Kitts; 527 of those are being challenged as deceased.
On Nevis there were 401 objections over three constituencies; 114 are challenged as being deceased.
He also noted that incomplete or incorrect objections will not be processed.
Mr. Bailey also pointed out that by a recent amendment to the Act, persons whose address has changed have a six-month grace period to amend their information before they become “illegally” registered.
He stressed that the Act does not allow any amendment to an objection after the period for objections has passed, therefore objections that are based on incorrect information, and any that are received after the due date will not be addressed.
