I just got an email from one of the candidates saying,"All residents that are members of the Commonwealth and Caricom can vote in
the municipal elections providing that they have been here a year without leaving the country
."
I assume that's if you register.
Now i wonder when is the deadline for registering? and where do you do it?

I thought it was 6 months. Yes you would have to register at the Elections and Boundaries office. I think it is upstairs in the building where the San Pedro Sun office and ACCSD office is located.

We have registered and shall be voting. I'm very excited as this is probably one of the few times in my life where my vote actually matters.

Amen! one of 100's of thousands hardly makes you feel you've effected.
But in San Pedro you might be the deciding vote!

Is voting typically down party lines in SP or does an independent, one in particular, have a chance to bust the two party successions?

A very good chance and my vote is with her.
Everyone seems ready for a change and disenchanted with PUP and UDP.

Dianne, dont you wish you could have crystal ball to actually know what a candidate will do vs Say what they will do? *sigh*.

Meanwhile I suppose fresh ideas, not stale promises, and the political will to move forward are about as good as one can get anywhere these days.

Yes elbert IMO that candidate's a winner. I hope the voters see it that way too.

Well maybe if they would just say what they consider important things to try to do ....... for instance -

1. collect unpaid property taxes (NO reasesments or increases until what is owed is collected, accounted for and properly spent)
2. levy fair trades license fees and have uniform enforcement
3. control speeding vehicles
4. cancel (or drastically lower) the bridge toll
5. repair the bridge
6. present an audited budget annually
7. Collect garbage - clean beaches
8. rein in the rampant property destruction caused by the painting at "carnival".
9. close liquor establishments at the legally mandated hours as noted in their licenses
10. close brothels & crack houses
11. enforce truancy laws - keep kids in school

If the next slate does #1, my guess is that the town can easily afford the rest.
