** Voter Registration is the process by which the eligibility of individuals to vote in an election is established. The last time we conducted voter registration was in 2011.In 2014 we conducted update on the voter roll. The voter roll created in 2011 is no longer valid because it cannot be relied upon for accounting and planning purposes.
** Since those registrations, some of the registered voters have died while others have traveled. As such, the voter roll no longer offers realistic basis for conducting critical elections like those we are about to conduct.
Preparation for 2017 VR Exercise
** To conduct a new voter registration, the NEC had to procure voter registration materials; majority of which was procured overseas. Most of the materials including cameras, solar panels, and forms are in country and have been delivered to the various NEC warehouses in the counties for onward deployment to registration centers. The last batch of the OMR forms is expected in country shortly.
** We are confident that the materials in country are sufficient to start the process while we await the arrival of the remaining forms. We guarantee that this will in no way hamper the process.
