Since establishing provincial voter information centres last week, the National Election Committee (NEC) has deleted more than 30,000 repeated names from voter records for the 2013 national election, officials said yesterday.
NEC Secretary General Tep Nytha said that the NEC hopes to remove more than 141,000 duplicate registrations.
“NEC has also informed ministries, public offices and departments to post declarations and advise its officials to register to vote,” Nytha said.
The NEC plans to spend more than US$20 million on voter registration and the 2013 national election.
The information centres complement a pre-existing web-based system to verify registration.
