Postal and Mobile Voting Update

Postal and Mobile Voting Update

With first round of mobile voting in 2021 General Election complete, turnout for early voting has so far been encouraging, according to Supervisor of Elections, Wesley Howell.

“We’re very pleased to see these voters taking advantage of the early voting options available to those voters who would have difficulty visiting the polls on General Election day. So far, the processes in place have been working exceptionally well. I sincerely thank the Elections team for their sustained efforts and dedication thus far,” said Mr. Howell.

Elections Office teams facilitated mobile voting throughout the electoral districts in Grand Cayman during the week of 22 - 26 March 2021. A total of 664 mobile voting applications have been approved and of those, 587 mobile voters voted[RL1] . This number of votes represents 77% of the 765 voters who utilized mobile voting during the 2017 General Election, with just over a week left for voters to apply for mobile voting.

The second opportunity for electors to cast their mobile votes is scheduled to take place across all three islands on Thursday, 8 or Friday 9, April. Further details on this are available at www.elections.ky.

Postal ballots continue to be issued to overseas voters as applications are received. As of Friday, 26 March, a total of 268 postal ballots have been dispatched to voters from all Electoral districts except Cayman Brac West and Little Cayman, as no voters from that electoral district have requested postal ballots.

Voters who are currently overseas and those with plans to travel back to the Cayman Islands over the next few weeks are encouraged to apply for postal ballots.

Mobile voting is scheduled for 10 and 11 April for those voters who will not be able to take advantage of postal voting and will not be able to vote at the polls on Election Day due to quarantine restrictions.

If a voter is off-island or otherwise unable to visit the polls on Election Day, there is still time to apply for postal or mobile voting respectively. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, 6 April. Find more information about who can apply and how to submit an application by going to www.elections.ky, emailing office@elections.ky or by calling the Elections Office at 1 345 949 8047.

Below is the latest data on mobile voting and postal ballots issued.
