Cayman Island Votes in Referendum

July 18, 2012, midnight

On July 18, 5,631 registered voters in the Cayman Islands voted in favor of changing the country’s electoral system to single member constituencies in the “One Person, One Vote” referendum. However, since the number of voters in favor of changing the system did not reach 7,582, or the 50 percent plus one of all registered voters, the referendum results are not binding. Although roughly 64 percent of those who voted approved the change, Premier McKeeva BUSH stated that the Cayman Islands will remain a multimember constituency system. The next general election in the Cayman Islands will be in May of 2013.
