By BBN Staff: The Elections and Boundaries Department issued a release yesterday informing that it is assuring the public that the official result of the San Pedro Town Council Election has not yet been released.
According to the release, the information will only be released upon receipt of the official forms from the Returning Officer and after all figures have been checked and verified for accuracy.
The information that is presently available on the Elections and Boundaries Department website (www.elections.gov.bz) in relation to the San Pedro Town Council is the hourly count figures which the department receives at one hour intervals during polling.
The department says that the information is shared with the public to keep them updated on the number of persons who have voted within an hour and is in no way to be interpreted as the official number of persons who vote in the election.
‘This is due to the fact that at time of receiving the information, it is likely that persons are still waiting in line to cast their vote. As mentioned, no official result will be released until official documentation is presented to the Elections and Boundaries Department and checked for accuracy,’ the statement explains.
The public is advised to check the website for the official result which will be shared with the public once received, checked and verified for accuracy.
