Voters' decisions

Let's try to get inside the heads of voters by discussing how voters make decisions. Now obviously, like all decision making, voter decisions are influenced by a multitude of factors, but the three we are going to focus on today (and the three political scientists seem to think play the biggest role) are party loyalty, the issues involved in an election, and candidate characteristics. Now this all might seem like common sense, and well it sort of is, but it's important to be aware of and take into account the factors that influence our decisions - especially when considering that many voters are not particularly well-informed.

To become a registered voter, you must personally submit all required documents. You must give your Elections Officer an accomplished Registration form (CEF-1A) that can be obtained from the Office of Election Officer (OEO) or downloaded from the commission's website. Along with your form, you must also submit a photocopy of any valid identification that includes your photo, autograph and address. None of the three qualifications must be deficient.

Wait until all documents are verified by the assigned election officer. Once all the documents have been authenticated, you can continue with the next step, which is to take your biometric data, which includes your signature, reference mark and image.

The last step is to obtain your acknowledgment receipt that you can present when you obtain your voter's identification.

Registration is open Monday through Friday (including holidays) from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Keep in mind that it may take up to 3 years before obtaining your voter ID.
