It’s been several hours since the polls opened (6 AM) for people to vote in the 2022 general elections of Barbados. Given that this election is being held in a COVID-19 environment, the Electoral and Boundaries Commission (EBC) indicated that there could be delays that could lead to a late announcement.
Based on data from The Voter’s List, there are at least 266,330 persons who are eligible to vote in 2022’s election. Using an electoral map of Barbados, I’ve shown how many electors there are per constituency.
With this data in hand, i.e., the number of electors per constituency, and making the big assumption here that those numbers have not changed (impossible), or have not changed significantly since 2018 (possible), I’ve put together a table showing the voter turn out at the constituency level from 2018’s general election (# of valid votes for 2018 was obtained from the Caribbean Elections website).
Let’s see what the results look like in a few hours time!
