Elections Department – which polling station to cast your vote

Providenciales, TCI, December 10, 2016 – The Supervisor of Elections, Lister Dudley Lewis, has announced the allocation of voters to polling stations for General Election of the Turks and Caicos Islands schedule for 15th December 2016.

The Elections Ordinance requires the Supervisor to allocate each elector to the appropriate designated polling station within their electoral district, in any case where there is more than one polling station in that district.

This is done by the Supervisor providing a list to the Returning Officers that details the persons who are to vote at that polling station by reference to the order of their family names.

The official list of voters to be provided to each polling station is specified in the Election Ordinance and it contains only the details of those persons who are allocated to vote at that polling station.

To be able to vote at the polling station, your details must appear on the official list for that polling station. This means that you have to vote at the polling station to which you have been allocated within your electoral district.

If you try to vote at another polling station in the electoral district to which you have not been allocated and where your details do not appear on the official list, you will not be allowed to vote and will be referred to the polling station to which you have been allocated.
