Press Release

31st October 2023, GEORGETOWN - The Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is committed to producing and issuing National Identification Cards to first time registrants within the shortest possible time. However, it is not unusual for this process to be held back a bit due to the need to routinely conduct the crossmatching of the relevant fingerprints, on a monthly basis, to check for multiple registration. The primary objective of the fingerprint cross-matching exercise is to ensure that no registrant is listed in the National Register of Registrants more than once. In this regard, providing that there are no issues with an applicant's registration transaction, an Identification Card would be produced at no later than six (6) weeks from the time of the application. It is, therefore, against this backdrop that the Guyana Elections Commission is advising all persons who applied for registration to check with the Registration Office where they applied for registration to enquire about the availability of their Identification Card and to ensure that they uplift it at their earliest convenience.
