Bahamians Say They Want Change

by Jones Bahamas

Officials at the Registrar General’s Department says voter registration numbers for the 2017 General Election at this time are lower than normal; however Bahamians say they are registering because they want their voice to be heard.

According to Parliamentary Commissioner Sherlyn Hall, in New Providence fewer than 2,000 Bahamians have reportedly registered to vote as of as of September 9th.

The voter registration number for the country stands at around 50,000.

There may be a number of factors that contribute to why the numbers are what they are.

The Bahama Journal went straight to the source and asked Bahamians if they were registered or not.
