And as such, the ECN is committed to ensure that no group in society is denied an equitable opportunity to register to vote. The ECN’s voter and civic education programme will ensure that all eligible voters in-country and abroad have adequate information to ensure the registration of every eligible person in each societal group.
The Supplementary Registration of Voters will take place at various registration points nationwide and will start from 08h00 in the morning to 19h00 in the evening, Monday to Sunday.
