NEC sets up telephone hotline before election

The government’s main electoral committee has set up a phone hotline to provide basic details for voters in the frenzied lead-up to the national elections in July.

Launched on Friday by the National Election Committee, the hotline, which can be reached by dialling 1285, will provide information on voter registration, polling places and the correct times for casting ballots on election day.

NEC chairman Im Suosdey said the hotline would lift the burden placed on voters who have to use word-of-mouth on election day to navigate the polls. Dialling was free, he said, and the NEC planned to launch five more lines in April to deal with the extra volume of voters preparing for the polls.
