    This is a brilliant initiative.St.Lucia has embraced the new tecnnology in a manner which makes it much easier to access voter information .However,I am still unable to find information on the bye elections in Babonneau(1998),Castries Central(1996),Castries Central (2006) and Micoud North(2007).I do hope this information will be entered as soon as possible for the benefit of researchers like me.
