UWP President Lennox Linton criticizes voter registration proposals that flout the notion of absenteeism, and rather suggests a focus on residence and reforming the franchise to ensure voters rights
President of the United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton, highlights an issue with some proposals for voter registration. He points out that some reform proposals focus on absent from the state while still being considered resident, leading to errors in voter registration. Linton suggests that the new law should focus on residence as the determining factor for voter registration and should be reformed accordingly.
Linton advocated that the right to vote should be tied to current residence. He emphasized that this franchise is not indefinite and draws a parallel with the United States, where inactive voters can be removed from the register between election cycles but still have the option to regain their voting rights. He questions why some individuals who are not residing in Dominica insist on the right to vote in its elections.
