NEC voter registration ongoing until November 30

The National Election Committee (NEC) announced on November 20 that over the first 37 days of voter list inspection and registration 380,961 people had registered to vote and 180,762 names were marked for deletion from the voter list.

The NEC said that on November 19 alone there were 8,559 new registered voters while 3,131 entries were deleted from the voter list. 4,227 people had corrected their registration data and 2,255 people had registered moves to new communes that day.

NEC said that within the first 37 days of the registration period, there were 380,961 newly registered voters, and 180,762 names that were marked for deletion from the voter list. 152,976 people had corrected their registration data and 115,505 people had registered moves to new communes.

“The 2021 voter list inspection and registration takes place from October 12 to November 30, 2021, including Saturdays and Sundays. Citizens who become eligible to vote, please go and check the voter list and register in the voter registration offices currently located in some villages communes,” the press release said.

The press release added that the voter list inspection and registration period was intended to give people the opportunity to check their names and data against the final lists that will be used for the 2022 commune council election. If they find something that is wrong, they have to correct it and make sure their information accords with their Cambodian ID cards in order to vote in the upcoming election.

NEC is also trying to register those who have just reached the age of 18 or will before the 2022 election (those born before or born on June 6, 2004), Cambodian citizens who moved to a new commune and those who have never registered to vote before.
