Young voters challenge

Elections Supervisor Wesley Howell hopes the steps his office is taking will help bolster the number of young voters at the polls.
According to the ESO less than 100 Caymanians 18 to 19 years old have registered to vote through October.
While low numbers of young voters are not unique to Cayman Mr Howell hopes by extending voter registration to January 16th and a ramping up voter education campaigns more young people will get involved.
“Some of them do not understand the whole political system, they do not understand the way that government works and they are not aware how their vote, their ability to influence the outcome of decisions, work. So we have been sharing with them how they have an ability to have a say in the way their country is run,” the Supervisor of Elections says.
The general election is scheduled for May 24th.
