UPP Candidate urges Rural North residents to collect voter-ID cards and to register to vote once eligible

Pearl Quinn-Williams, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. John’s Rural North, is urging her constituents to collect their voter-identification cards from the Registration Unit in Yorks.

Last week, Elisa Graham, Public Relations Officer  for the Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC), reported that over 1,000 ID cards remain uncollected.

Graham said that some of the cards belong to persons who have traveled overseas, mainly to attend school.

However, Quinn-Williams is urging Rural North residents who have registered and are on island at this time to collect their cards and to do so with haste.

Further, the UPP Candidate is encouraging those persons who are eligible to be registered, but who have not done so yet, to get it done “as a matter of urgency,” so they can be  part of the voting process once the election is called.
