numbers give an overview of our progress to date and the amount of interest
being expressed in the election.
3,094 names on “Preliminary Electors” Posted List - December 21,
2,086 names on “Applications under Review” Posted List - December 21, 2004
5,180 Total potential electors as of December 21, 2004
All of these have been reviewed.
None have been refused.
169 are waiting for documentary proof. The information needed is shown in the ancestry charts and recorded in the database, which indicates that the documentation was previously provided. However, the paper documents are not on the file. We need to see the paper documents in order to verify the enrolment. Letters have been sent out.
processed but awaiting further information
not yet processed.
Current number of applications to be processed -1,525
Time to revisit applications upon receipt of new information – est. 275? (474 requests)
Estimate of new applications – 200?
Current rate of processing applications 95 per day (Our current experience is that we are enrolling about 40% of applications processed; refusing 5%; while 55% require more information)
Estimate 21 days work to completion
Projected day of completion February 15, 2005
At “completion date” applications would fall into three
1. Enrolled (will be entitled to vote for ANR) I project about 800 new enrolments
2. Refused (will not be on any list; will NOT be entitled to vote) I project about 100 refusals
3. Pending additional information (will be on an “Under Review” list; will NOT be entitled to vote) I project about 1200 remaining under review awaiting more information. This number may be much higher if we get a lot of new applicants who have not had assistance documenting family trees.

ARE BASED OUR CURRENT EXPERIENCE WHICH COULD CHANGE DRASTICALLY.
We have had about 65 requests (phone calls, e-mails, faxes) from
individuals since the lists were posted. Many
of the requests involve multiple contacts. This does not include calls from
community leaders or e-mails of a political nature. The number of requests per
day has been steadily increasing since the first week in January.
