Even as the nation awaits a verdict from the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on the no-confidence motion case, the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) has initiated the process of house-to-house registration.
GECOM announced this development by way of an advertisement in the daily newspapers today. In that public advisory, the elections body disclosed that it will be establishing teams of enumerators (persons tasked with taking a census of the population) who will visit houses and places of residence to register persons in Guyana.
GECOM has noted too that, “If you were previously registered, you will need to be registered again,” adding that persons should “look out for GECOM (and) make it your responsibility to get registered.”
During this registration exercise, GECOM said that registration will not be done at its offices. Moreover, it was revealed that each eligible person will be registered where he/she resides using the required registration form and relevant source documents.
GECOM in its announcement further explained that for the purpose of house-to-house registration, a residence includes: dwelling places such as homes and residential institutions, including hospices and homes for youth and the elderly.
