NEC Begins Awareness On Voter Roll Exhibition in Bong
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

BELEFENAI, April 23 (LINA) - As part of the buildup to the Mid-term Senatorial Election in October this year, the Bong County branch of the National Elections Commission (NEC) has begun civic awareness on the exhibition of the provisional Voter Roll across the county.

Exhibition of the Voter Roll starts on Monday, April 28, and ends on Friday, May 2.

The process will include publication of the names of those registered during the recent Voter Roll Update (VRU) for validation.

During the process, citizenship and other information on those registered can also be questioned by suspecting individuals.

From January 13 to March 5 this year, NEC undertook a 45-day VRU process across the country in which nearly 10,000 persons were registered from 76 VRU centers across Bong County.

The VRU process, according to NEC, was aimed at capturing citizens who turned 18 after the last election in 2011, those who have relocated and others who lost their voting cards, to qualify to participate in the October 2014 special senatorial election.

Mr. Daniel Newland, Senior Magistrate of the NEC Bong County sub-office, the five-day exercise is intended to afford citizens the opportunity to endorse or dispute information captured in the NEC data base.

Also, NEC Regional Coordinator for Region Three, Mr. Saye W. Zelabah, told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Belefenai Tuesday that the exhibition exercise is aimed at affording citizens the opportunity to help government prevent fraud in the electoral process.

He noted that unless citizens take advantage of the exhibition exercise, foreigners could penetrate the country’s electoral system and render illegitimate the results of the process that takes place on October14 this year.
