Few Canadian-Sudanese registered to vote in referendum

Saturday, January 8, 2011

VANCOUVER — As southern Sudanese across the world vote on a referendum Sunday that could divide their country, Sudanese-Canadians have expressed little interest in the process.

Organizers here believe the lack of interest was evident in the poor turnout among the Sudanese diaspora who registered to vote.

Only 2,192 Sudanese registered to vote in the two centres in Canada. And while a registration centre in Seattle was set up to draw British Columbia residents, only 571 registered to vote there, according to the International Organization for Migration who are assisting in the referendum.
