Voters will go to the polls today to elect the newest member to the Corporation of St George.

They will choose between Cyniqua Anderson and Mark Soares for the position of councillor. Both are East End businesspeople who agreed that the people of St George were its greatest strength.

A vacancy was created in the Corporation of St George after the death of Phillip “Phoopa” Anderson — Ms Anderson’s father — in December.

The Parliamentary Registrar reminded voters yesterday that the polling station will be open from 8am until 8pm at the Pennos Wharf Cruise Ship Terminal. A statement added: “To be eligible to vote, the voter must be registered within the municipal area and bring a valid photo identification to the polling station.”

Voters were reminded that using phones and other portable electronic devices was banned inside the polling station.

The Parliamentary Registrar’s office will also be open from 8am until 8pm today to help voters with identification cards and other election information.

You must be registered or signed-in to post comment or to vote.
