Background & Context
** 12.17 million eligible Pakistani women are not registered to voters’ lists.
** Women represent only 43.7% of citizens on the electoral rolls.
** This gap is likely to increase by more than a million by next year, leading to disenfranchisement of many women in the next General Election 2018.
** Citizens are organized to advocate for and actively facilitate women to acquire NICs and register as voters.
** Influential local stakeholders (such as religious leaders, elders, leaders of local CSOs, and other local community leaders or “influential”) are actively engaged in support of women to acquire NICs and register as voters.
** Coordination of citizens and their groups with relevant state institutions (such as local ECP and NADRA offices and local administration) facilitate women to acquire NICs and register as voters.
** Political party leaders (and candidates) are actively engaged in support for women to acquire NICs and register as voters
** A comprehensive strategy developed to effectively address the growing gender-gap.
** This strategy is evidence-driven, based on a detailed analysis of under-registration of women by census block/electoral area.
** Established a database of 139,472 census-blocks(2013) with gender-segregated voters’ statistics, which will assist to identify the exact locality with unregistered women.
** This approach will enable optimal use of resources, focusing on geographic locations estimated to have the largest numbers of unregistered women.
** Identification and facilitation of unregistered women will be made by door-to-door visits and listing
** Coordination meetings with NADRA, DVEC, DEC and District Administration.
** Engagement and Mobilization with local influentials for increasing women’s registration
i. Meetings with stakeholders (i.e., Government Officials (District and Union Councils); Local Governments’ Representatives; Girls Schools’ and Colleges’ and their Principals; Media; Office Bearers of political parties etc.) for increasing women registration
** Public Forum at district level
** Corner meetings and Information Stalls at census block level
** Door-to-door visits and listing of unregistered women.
