Voter info centres help clear election records

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.
