NEC voter list posted on January 3, starting 10 day window for objections

The registered voters list and the list of names removed from the 2021 voter list are due to be posted on January 3, 2022, at commune halls across the country. The two lists will be posted at the same time to make it easier for voters to verify their names and data.

"If they can't find their name on the voter list then they can immediately check the list of deletions to see if that's where the error lies," said National Election Committee (NEC) member Hing Thirith at a meeting on December 31.

In a press release about the results of the meeting, Thirith said that the number of people on the first voter list to be posted was 9,205,675 with a total of 23,602 polling offices nationwide. The names of 224,970 people were removed from the voter list because they had moved, died or were disenfranchised.

“Anyone has the right to file a complaint or objection in writing using form 1202 related to the initial voter list and the list of names of people removed from the voter list by giving the filled out form to their commune council within 10 days of this posting,” the notice said.

Thirith added that the lists will be also posted on the Facebook page of the NEC.

He called on people who had already registered to vote to verify their names and data in the initial voter list at communes or the NEC Facebook, website of the NEC at voterlist.nec.gov.kh or the NEC app, which can be found by searching for NEC KH.

Beyond the NEC committee members, the meeting had 66 other attendees including representatives from the Constitutional Council, Senate, National Assembly, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Information, National Police and experts from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) as well as representatives from political parties, NGOs and the media.
