Voter Roll Update Exercise Begins 

MONROVIA, Jan 30 (LINA) - The National Elections Commission (NEC) has begun the conduct of a Voter Roll Update Exercise across the country.

The Commission began the process Wednesday at seven Voter Registration Centers in four counties in Liberia.

The counties are Bong, Gbarpolu, Grand Bassa and Grand Kru.

The nationwide Voter Roll Update Exercise is intended to include an estimated 400, 000 persons on the current Voter Roll of Liberia.

The 2014 Voter Roll Update Exercise runs from January 29 to March 21, 2014.

It seeks to include on the Voter Roll eligible Liberians who have attained the age of 18 years and above, since the Voter Registration Exercise of 2011, Individuals who did not register during the Voter Registration Exercise of 2011 and Registered Voters who have relocated since the Voter Registration Exercise of 2011, and wish to be captured under New Voter Registration Centers.

In a statement on the eve of the start of the exercise, NEC Chairman, Jerome Korkoya, encouraged all Liberians who fall within the three categories to turn out en masse in order to be included on the Voter Roll of Liberia.

The NEC Boss reminded Liberians that attaining a Voter Registration Card is a prerequisite for participation in the October 14, 2014 Special Senatorial Election.

The nation-wide Voter Roll Update Exercise will be conducted by 200 Mobile Teams that would traverse the 1780 Voter Registration Centers across the country.

Each team would spend three days at a Voter Registration Center and will be conducted over a period of 45 days.
