With municipal elections just seven weeks away, activities at the Election and Boundaries Office have been heightening. The political organs have been on the ground searching for unregistered Belizeans and legible Commonwealth nationals meeting the registration requirements to have them register to vote for the upcoming municipal elections scheduled for March 7, 2012. To accommodate the high number of new registrations at the different offices countrywide, the Election and Boundaries Department has extended the deadline for registration.

In a public notice, the Election and Boundaries Department informed that the cutoff date for new registered voters is January 20th.
