Share

The Elections and Boundaries Department informs the public that all Registration Offices countrywide will be open to the public effective Monday, May 4, 2020, during the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

In an effort to ensure we continue to provide efficient services while protecting staff and the public, the cooperation of all is required. In the wake of COVID-19, services will be provided by adhering to the strict safety guidelines as mandated by the Government of Belize. Social distancing protocols will be strictly enforced in the provision of services.

The following must be adhered to:

– Any person who is ill, exhibiting flu-like symptoms, or is required to be in quarantine or in isolation is requested to refrain from accessing services.

– All persons accessing services are required to wear a face mask or other face (mouth) covering.

– All persons accessing services will be required to properly sanitize hands prior to entering and exiting the offices.

– All persons in line to access services must ensure the six feet social distancing requirement is adhered to.

– The number of persons admitted inside the offices at any one time will be managed to ensure that the six feet social distancing is maintained at all times.

The continuous support and cooperation of the public are greatly appreciated as we work together to enhance democracy in Belize.

“Remember, only a registered voter can vote in an election. Exercise your right.”
