With over 570,000 Guyanese eligible to vote at the upcoming General and Regional elections, Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) has expressed the belief that its voter education campaign has been a success thus far.As General and Regional elections inch closer, GECOM has upped its game in getting relevant information to the electorate and part of its campaign involves frequent advertisements being disseminated to the public.When contacted yesterday, GECOM Chairman Steve Surujbally said the body’s public awareness campaign was “going satisfactorily”.Surujbally said too, that the adverts were disseminated to encourage Guyanese to be prepared to vote at the upcoming elections.Similarly, GECOM’s Public Relations Officer (PRO) Richard Francois emphasised the importance of the body’s voter education programme.“We have to make sure that people understand the system and how to use the system when the time comes,cheap nfl jerseys online,” Francois explained. “We hope the message resonates with the public,Jerseys NFL Cheap,” he added.According to Francois, there are over a dozen adverts coming from GECOM for this election season. These adverts, he said,Cheap Jerseys USA, are transmitted on television and on radio while other messages are placed within the print media.He said too, that GECOM has also been distributing flyers and using megaphones to get its messages out to the public as part of its “aggressive” campaign. Billboards have also been erected though no door-to-door campaigning is ongoing, Francois said.Francois added that the campaign began a few weeks ago and has been progressively intensifying.Meanwhile, Francois indicated that few of the questions reaching GECOM deals with the Official List of Electors (OLE).“We haven’t heard questions really on lists and so forth,” he said.

The party’s General Secretary, Clement Rohee had said that GECOM must do this to sensitize voters about elections day procedures as well as the rights of voters at polling places.
