Enthusiastic Response to New Voter ID Card Distribution

EOJ to extend opening days


The Electoral Office of Jamaica (EOJ) has taken note of the enthusiastic support from electors who have collected their new Voter ID card. During the first ten (10) days of the distribution exercise, which began on October 11, over 107,000 new Voter ID cards were distributed to registered electors whose current ID card was renewed.


The EOJ has noted the high turnout at constituency offices during the last two weeks and continues to explore new approaches to enhance the distribution process


Starting Saturday, November 6, EOJ offices will open on Saturdays to facilitate the collection and renewal of Voter ID cards. The offices will be open to the public from 8:30am to 3:00pm on Saturdays.


The EOJ will also facilitate the collection of new ID cards at satellite locations in communities, beginning the week of November 22, 2021. The listing of satellite sites and the schedule for distribution will be publicized.


Elderly and incapacitated electors are encouraged to take advantage of the at-home delivery provision. A relative, caregiver or friend may contact the EOJ constituency office on behalf of the elderly or incapacitated elector, to make an application for the new Voter ID card to be delivered to the elector at his/her home or dwelling.


The Electoral Office of Jamaica thanks electors for their patience as we transition to the New Voter Identification Card.
