Vote cards

More than 12,000 voter registration cards have been declared void in Kampong Cham

province because of faulty ID photographs, the Provincial Election Committee reported.

An official said 4,000 belong to garment workers in Phnom Penh. "No matter what

happens, we'll try to have everyone come in to have their picture taken again before

election day," he said. Meang Meng Huon said poor practice by local election

officials was the cause of the faulty photos: "They didn't read the instructions."

Almost 5,000 people have had new photographs taken.
