Voter Roll Update Consultations Begin in Robertsport

By D. Ignatius Roberts

ROBERTSPORT, Jan 17 (LINA) - National Election Commission (NEC) chairman Jerome G. Korkoya has admonished traditional leaders and local government officials to participate in the voter registration update process to achieve its intended objectives.

He said the participation of local and traditional leaders in the process will encourage rural dwellers to also get involved.

Chairman Korkoya made the statement on Friday in Robertsport during the official opening program of a two- day Civic Voter Education and Gender Regional Consultation, the Liberia News Agency reports.

He said the exercise is being held under the theme: “Enhancing Increased Equitable Participation in the Voter Roll Update Exercise.”

Cllr. Korkoya stressed that the success of the electoral process in Liberia is the responsibility of every Liberian and not only NEC.

He explained that the exercise targets youths who have turned 18 since the 2011 presidential and general elections, as well as to replace missing and damaged voters cards and the voter cards of persons who have changed their locations since then.
