LEADER of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP), Mia Mottley, is urging those who are eligible to vote in the upcoming General Election to go and check to see that their names are on the voters list.
Mottley issued the reminder yesterday afternoon, at the National Housing Corporation (NHC), Country Road, St. Michael, where her party’s 30 candidates paid their deposits.
“It is important for people to go and check the list themselves. Of course, we have candidates and canvassers doing it. But if you really want to make sure that you can vote on May 24, don’t wait for a canvasser or a candidate to check that your name is on the list.
“Go to blp.org.bb, or call the electoral office hotline and check yourself. If your name is not on the voters list, by Monday evening you will not be able to vote. Please go and check, if it is not there, then you can go to any of the centres. I want you to check the list for your name,” Mottley advised.
Since the year started, the Barbados Labour Party showed signs that the candidates were gearing up for the 2018 General Election. The fact that the BLP was ready became obvious, when Prime Minister the Right Honourable Freundel Stuart, through the Government Information Service (GIS), exactly one week ago, announced the dates for Nomination Day as May 7, and May 24 as Election Day. The BLP’s campaign machine began moving.
