Voters asked to rate experience during elections

Supervisor of Elections Juliette Penn

Voters are being asked to rate their experience during the recently-concluded general election.

This is being done through a survey commissioned by the Office of the Supervisor of Elections along with the Governor and Deputy Governer’s offices.

“The survey seeks to capture the overall voter experience following the introduction of new processes aimed at improving the efficiency of the election process,” organisers of the survey explained.

The survey — which is known as an exit poll — comprises of 12 questions and can be accessed and completed online OR by hard copy which can be collected and completed from the Office of the Deputy Governor on Flemming Street.

“Voters throughout the territory are encouraged to complete the survey by March 29.”

A total of 15,038 persons were registered to vote in the 2019 General Elections. The voter turnout was reported at 64.64 percent of that number.

    I’ve been a voter for many years and by far the 2019 elections process has been the most efficient. It was easy and fast.

    The people of the 4th are upset for waiting in line to elect a man that quit days later. We need government to make laws for people that quit while in office for any reason except health or jail time fines up to a minimum of $500,000 or 1 year of jail time.

    Waiting time was awful. Waited in line for two hours. Wasted time especially after winning candidate is now pi-fooling. Leaves one to wonder whether the motive is love for people and representing the district properly or greed, perks, power and authority.

    Focus! Please stick to the topic of the article. Were you satisfied with the voting mechanism? The question had nothing to do with candidates! Jeeze

      Seems like the jack***** here on Tortola don’t seem to know how to read and understand what they are reading. A simple survey turns into a political thing. I voted in the 3rd and it went well for me.

    It was very good at the polls but the results stayed too long.
