Permits, license plates to be returned for elections


As of Friday, motorists who have had their permits or license plates confiscated by police for minor offenses can reclaim them so they can vote in Sunday’s general elections.

This does not apply to drivers who have committed serious offenses, such as driving under the influence, speeding, running a red light or driving an uninsured vehicle.

It is customary for authorities to give back car and motorcycle licenses before elections.
