The registration crew came by my house while I was in Guyana 3 weeks ago. They said they needed a birth certificate, national ID or passport to register. I told them I got a ID I can show them, they said it was no longer valid you need a new id. Ask if any rep from other parties are involve in the registration process - also answer in the negative.
are you domiciled in Guyana? i.e., resident for at least the past year?
if not, you were attempting to perpetrate a fraud
they should have locked your ass up
I do not know how the term domicile and residence is construed in Guyana. In the US, your domicile is where you stay while engaged in some activity ( leisure or business) that keeps you away from your legal residence. Your residence is where you vote and pay local taxes.
That being said, one can be abroad ie domiciled abroad while one's legal residence is in Guyana. Students, diplomats, contract workers etc are prime examples here. I am not sure of the law regarding the reality of such a possibility but it happens.
