The higher the percentage of people who register, the higher the percentage of people who vote. It’s the one opportunity that people have to determine who is going to govern them and notwithstanding whatever issues that might confront people, it’s the most effective means people have to determine the direction of their country by registering to vote and so I encourage them to vote.” The Parliamentary Registration Department says just over half of who registered last elections have showed up at registration centers; recorded now at just under 88,000 Bahamians.  The Tribune caught the retired country leader and his wife at Government High School, where they were registering themselves.  #MagneticMediaNews Related Items:Former PM Ingraham says register to votecenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img
