ALL Electoral Office of Jamaica (EOJ) constituency offices, for the next three months, will be opened on Saturdays.

The Electoral Commission of Jamaica said in a release last Friday that this is in an effort to make the voter ID card renewal exercise more accessible to the public.

The release said all EOJ constituency offices will be opened on Saturdays 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Additionally, the Electoral Office of Jamaica also reminded the public that it has also established 272 additional temporary renewal sites where the renewal process can also take place.

These centres have been established in all constituencies, with some select locations also being opened on Saturdays. A listing of all temporary renewal sites can be accessed via the ECJ's website, the release said.

During the renewal exercise, which began on November 4, 2019 and is expected to continue into 2020, electors will take their photographs, as this is a major aspect of the process.

“The public is being asked to wear dark colours to facilitate the high-quality photographs that are desirous in keeping with accuracy in identifying voters,” the release said.
