Members of the public are reminded that they must produce the original and one copy of the documents when visiting the Constituency Registration Centres, whether they are registering for the first time, making a change to their registration or replacing their Identification Card.

Documents which must be presented in support of a person’s name, place of birth and date of birth are: Birth Certificate; Registrar’s Certificate (for a change of name done under the Change of Name Act); Marriage Certificate; Registered Deed Poll; Decree Absolute; Sworn Affidavit; and Register of Adopted Persons Certificate.

For non-nationals who cannot produce a birth certificate, the passport and a copy of the page with the personal details will be accepted for new registrations only.

They are also required to bring the original and one copy of their documents, including the status letter issued by the Chief Immigration Officer in support of their immigration status, and a copy of the page in the passport on which the immigration document is stamped.

Registration services are provided at the 30 centres, either on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, between 4:30 and 6:00 p.m. For additional information, including the days and location of the centres, the public should call the Electoral Department at 535-4800.
