Bermuda’s Parliamentary Registrar issued an advisory today for all registered voters who will be travelling on or before polling day next week and incapacitated voters may vote in the advanced polls, starting tomorrow.
The three-day period begins on Tuesday, July 11th, and continues on Wednesday, July 12th and Thursday, July 13th, at the Seventh Day Adventist Church on King Street in Hamilton, from 8am to 8pm.
Please note the following:
Advanced polling certificates for travelers will be issued at the Parliamentary Registry starting from July 5 through to July 13. The office will have extended hours on the 11th, 12th and 13th, from 8am to 8pm to issue certificates and voters cards.
* E-ticket receipt or a confirmed airline ticket itinerary showing the dates of travel; and
* Identification – accepted forms are: a driver’s license, a passport issued by a commonwealth country, a special person’s card, or a voter’s card.
Incapacitated voters will need to present themselves to the Chief Medical Officer at the Hamilton Health Centre on Victoria Street, Hamilton.
This includes those with physical disability needing assistance with voting and seniors who may need additional time and assistance to vote. Any voter who is scheduled for a medical procedure that will prevent them from being able to travel to the polling station on polling day may also apply to vote in advance.
Certificates will be issued from July 5 through to July 13, between 9am and 12pm and again from 2pm to 4pm, Monday through Friday.
Voters should call ahead for an appointment on 278-6460 to reduce waiting times at the clinic.
