When we got to the voters registration office on Middle street, it was very fast. They confirmed that both of us had been in Belize the required amount of time then we filled out paperwork, they took our pictures and wanted passport copies. Since Shirlee forgot hers she has to go back, they took the photo copy I brought and opted to do one of their own as well. My ID card should be ready within a month and the they said they will call me when it’s done.
More about what it takes to get a voter ID:
- You are from a commonwealth country and have lived in Belize for a year without leaving and been at least 2 months in the area where you are registering in our case San Pedro. Bring a photo copy and hard copy of passport.
- Anyone who is Nationalized or is a Belizean needs bring their passport or birth certificate and Social Security card.
- The office is located in the same building as the Post Office on Middle Street – 226-2220.
