Bodden Town voters surpass West Bay numbers
(CNS): Confirmed figures from the Cayman Islands Elections Office have revealed that 4,567 people are now registered to vote in Bodden Town, surpassing the 4,237 voters in the district of West Bay for the general election in May. However, both districts will be dwarfed by the number of people now eligible to go to the polls in the capital. According to the latest official figures, after the election registration campaign 7,457 voters will be entitled to cast a ballot in George Town on Election Day. The final figure for registered voters who will be qualified to take part in the national poll on 22 May is 18,556.
The surge in registered voters since the last election is due mostly to a concerted campaign since the July 2012 referendum, when considerable numbers of people in Cayman who wanted to vote when the national ballot on one man, one vote was announced were disenfranchised because they had failed to register in time.
More than 3,200 new voters will be able to go to the polls in May 2013 than were registered to vote in 2009. The latest figures from the Elections Office show that since Cayman voted in May 2009, every district has increased its voter numbers.
The smallest district of North Side has seen an increase in voters from 571 in 2009 to 602 this year and in East End there was a similar small growth from 599 in 2009 to 647.
Meanwhile, voter registration in Cayman Brac and Little Cayman grew from 980 to 1,046. In West Bay voters have increased from 3,762 to 4,237.
One of the most significant increases was in Bodden Town, where the voter list has grown by more than 1,000 from 3,481 in 2009 to 4,567 for this year’s election. The biggest jump of all, however, was in the capital, where voter registration surged from a 2009 figure of 5,968 to 7,457.
