Youth Group Embarks On Voter Education Campaign

By Chiedi E. Nyenmoh

MONROVIA, February 15 (LINA) – Educate The Future (ETF), a non-governmental youth group in Monrovia, has embarked on a voter registration education campaign to encourage youths to register to vote in the impending October 17 elections.

ETF Public Relations Officer Mohammed Salah told a local radio talk show that the exercise started over the weekend, targeting the youths who make up a large percentage of the voting populace.

Salah indicated that the youths are being educated on how to make the right decision in voting for their respective leaders in their district and the larger community.

“If the youths don’t make the right decision, whatever affects the country the youths will be mostly affected,” he pointed out.

Salah stated that trucking during election is a serious problem Liberia is facing, noting that voters leaving their districts and registering in another “for a little money” is wrong.

He added: “Voting in your district for the right person without being paid is better than to vote in another district for the wrong person because of trucking.”

Salah stated that the youths are mostly engaged in such habit which, according to him, is not in their best political interest.

He noted, however, that the awareness exercise will enlighten the minds of the youths on decision-making when they go to cast their ballots during the elections.
