PHOTOS ANGUILLA ELECTIONS ARE UNDERWAY!! LONG LINES AT POLLING BOOTHS.. CLICK BACK FOR UPDATES

Many St Maarteners have sailed to Anguilla to vote today. My Anguillan connection are sending me photos. Click back and I will continue to update the photos throughout the day.

The system in Anguilla is special, sort of an Americam system where you’re registered as a voter by a political party.

On election day all parties has their booths surrounding the voting polls.

You first have to go to the party’s table by which your registered. They have long long list with the names of the (potential) voters.

A voter goes to the impartial election officer in the room where the vote will be made and has their name checked on the list. They are given a ballot paper. They go to the private polling booth. They select the candidate of their choice on the ballot paper. They hand the now-folded ballot paper to the officer who tears off the counterfoil and keeps it and the voter puts the ballot in the secured box. The voter dips his/her finger in electoral ink as proof of having voted and to prevent them from voting more than once. The voter leaves the room. When there is no voter in the room, it contains the electoral officers and agents of the political candidates (there to observe and nothing else).
