(Cayman Compass) Billboards have sprung up all over the islands and political slogans are not difficult to overhear. But political candidates have to be formally nominated today for the campaign season to officially start.
All aspiring candidates considering running for office must file nomination forms with election officials in their respective districts on Monday, 1 March, between 8 am and 3 pm.
“Nomination Day is an important next step in the process to delivering Cayman’s free and fair elections,” said the supervisor of elections, Wesley Howell.
Prospective candidates must be nominated by at least two registered voters in the district they are running for.
