– Every person whose name appears on the PLE must verify their registration record

The Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) will commence a Claims and Objections (C&O) exercise with effect October 1, 2019. The countrywide exercise will be conducted at all GECOM Registration Offices countrywide. It will conclude on November 18, next.

Persons have until November 11, 2019 to make a claim to be included on the list if they are a Guyanese citizen by birth, descent, naturalisation or registration, 18 years or older or will attain the age of 18 by December 31, 2019.   

A citizen of a Commonwealth country living in Guyana for a period of no less than one year preceding December 31, 2019 can also be registered to be on the list.

During this exercise, every person whose name appears on the Preliminary List of Electors (PLE) must visit the Registration office in his respective area with their National Identification Card to verify his registration record in order to be included in the Official List of Electors (OLE).

The Commission also wishes to urge persons who require changes/corrections to their particulars and transfers in relation to their addresses to do same when verifying their registration.

Objections against the inclusion of names on the PLE can be tendered to the Registration Officer of the Registration Area from October 1, 2019 to November 18, 2019.

Over the next few days, the Commission will set up temporary offices and mobiles countrywide to aid the efficient conduct of the exercise and will publish the full list of those offices to ensure applicants/ registrants can access the office within close proximity to them to have their transaction done.
