Biometric voter registration update commences

The Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) update begins today across the country and will end on September 27.

The registration process is vital to capture those who have turned 18 and those who want to update or transfer their details or those who missed out in past registrations and also to remove deceased persons.

Those that have already registered are also encouraged to check their names against the Provisional Voter List at their respective Voter Registration Centers to confirm that they are already registered in their respective constituency or that their details need changing.

With this Voter Registration system, a photo Voter ID card will be issued on the spot to all new eligible voters and those that have never registered before.

Registered voters whose details have changed since the last voter registration exercise are required to update their information. If nothing has changed since the last voter registration exercise, you do not need to go to the voter registration center.

The public is encouraged to listen out or look out for advices on what to do via radio and txt messages from Our Telekom during the registration period.
