Municipal elections set for May 11
Elections for the corporations of Hamilton and St George will take place on May 11, it has been announced.
The vote comes in the wake of MPs passing legislation to limit term times for members of the corporations in the capital and the Town of St George to two years while a battle over the planned abolition of the organisations by the Government is fought out in the Privy Council in London.
Registration for municipal residents and business ratepayers will close at 5pm on April 6.
A government spokeswoman said: “Business ratepayers can check their registration details on our website at www.elections.gov.bm.
“If the registration details are correct and there are no changes, no further action is needed.
“If changes need to be made to a current registration or you would like to register a new business ratepayer, registration forms are available at the Parliamentary Registry, located on the third floor of Craig Appin House.
“Municipal residents can confirm their registration details on the Parliamentary Register either online or by coming to the Parliamentary Registry.
“If the registration details are correct no further action is needed. Any changes to municipal residents can be made using the change forms on our website.”
More information can be accessed at www.elections.gov.bm, or by calling 293-VOTE.
