The democratic wheel is in full process this morning as Belizeans head to the voting polls for Municipal Elections 2015. It is Elections Day, Wednesday, March 4, 2015, and seven towns and two cities around the country are geared up to exercise their rights to elect a new Town Council to run their communities for the period 2015 to 2018.
In San Pedro, the polling stations located at the San Pedro High School, opened at 7a.m. and movement was pretty slow up to 9a.m. with very short lines, but the voting process was steadily on its way. Party supporters are definitely busy recruiting supporters and mobilizing their groups to scour the island for strong supporters and potential voters.
In San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize, 21 candidates are up for elections and hopeful for one of the seven seats in the San Pedro Town Council. These candidates hold representation in three political parties including the United Democratic Party (UDP), People’s United Party (PUP) and the Vision Inspired for the People (VIP).
