Bahamas: REGISTRATION BOOM: Six constituencies have more than 6,000 voters

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — With voter registration continuing to slowly climb, at least six constituencies have more than 6,000 voters registered to date.

Up to last week, the current voter register stood at 189,888 voters, of which 131,528 voters were registered on New Providence; 30,348 on Grand Bahama; and 28,012 on the Family Islands.

According to data provided by Acting Parliamentary Commissioner Lavado Duncanson, constituencies seeing high voter registration numbers include Golden Isles (7,134), Killarney (6,696), Tall Pines, (6,138), Central Grand Bahama (6,631), East Grand Bahama (6,322) and Marco City (6,187).
