Nov 18, 2011 News Comments Off on APNU launches voters’ education campaign
Even as political parties complain about what they perceive to be inadequate voters’ education programmes by the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) has commenced its own campaign.
Scores of APNU volunteers yesterday converged in Main Street Avenue in the vicinity of COURTS where tents were erected to host the first of the voters’ education campaign outpost.
APNU’s Presidential Candidate Brigadier (rtd), David Granger, who was present, commended the volunteers and explained the importance of the exercise to the hosting of the 2011 General and Regional Elections.
One of the volunteers involved in the exercise told this publication that the voter education campaign is not targeting only APNU supporters. It was pointed out that any person regardless of their political allegiance could stop in at the outpost and make enquires as it relates to the election. The volunteers are armed with all of the necessary information including the locations of where an elector will have to turn up on polling day to vote.
These include the authenticated voters’ list. The volunteers are also armed with several brochures and mock-up ballots for demonstration and edification purposes.
Another outpost is slated to be erected in the vicinity of the Stabroek Market today with others stretching across the various regions in the country.
