Do I have to be
registered to vote?
All voters must be registered in the
constituency in which they live in order
to vote. Registration takes place throughout
the year. If you move to another constituency
or change your name, you must register
that change with the Parliamentary Registrar
within 28 days of the change.
Why does a voter
have to register?
Voters must be registered so that a
list of voters can be prepared in advance
of an election to determine numbers
of voters, and also to ensure that everyone
who comes to vote is eligible.
Who can register
Persons can register to vote if they
are Bermudian and 18 years of age or
older, or non-Bermudian Commonwealth
citizens who were registered to vote
on 1st May 1976.
Can I vote if I
will be off the island or in hospital
on polling day?
Persons who expect to be off the island
or in hospital on polling day, may vote
at an advanced poll approximately one
week before. Certificates of intended
absence or incapacity are required.
How can I tell if
I am registered?
Registration lists are always on display
at all post offices, police stations,
the library, the office of the Parliamentary
Registrar and online at
