How were the Final Electoral Rolls compiled?
The electoral rolls data, based on the house listing was compiled by the Election Commission of Pakistan and, was handed over to the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA), which prepared draft electoral rolls on the basis of CNIC data available with them. These rolls were then sent for door-to-door verification through school teachers appointed by the ECP as Verifying Officials. ‘Form A’ was devised to register the names and details of those eligible voters whose names were missing from the draft rolls and identified during the door-to-door verification process. ‘Form B’ was used to delete the names of those who were found to have died since the last updating of the rolls. Verified data was sent to NADRA for incorporation of updated information, which was then used to prepare preliminary rolls that were put on display for 21 days at Display Centers established across the country. Establishment of these centers’ was widely publicized through print and electronic media campaigns and the public was invited to verify their information and file claims for inclusion of their names, objections to the names of registered voters and apply for corrections of their wrong particulars. The Revising Authorities appointed by the ECP settled upon these claims, objections and applications for correction, on the basis of which the preliminary electoral rolls were revised and sent to NADRA for updating and printing the Final Electoral Rolls.
