MEC started Phase 2 of Voter Verification : low voter turnout has been a concern so far

On its website The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) is informing all registered voters, political parties, civil society organisations and the general public that the second phase of voter verification will start on Easter Monday, 21 April, 2014 and end on Friday, 25 April, 2014.

This second phase will cover Mulanje, Machinga, Mangochi, Balaka, Salima NKhotakota, and all districts in the Northern Region. Centres will be opening from 8AM to 4PM including lunch hour. The Commission is encouraging all registered voters in these districts  who might be unable verify their details during weekdays to take  advantage of the Easter Monday holiday to verify their details.

According to the posting, during this verification period, registered voters who lost their certificates  can also go to the centres where they registered to get duplicate certificates which will enable them vote easily on May 20, 2014.  

The Commission is also urging the public to report deaths of their relatives so that they should be removed from the voters’ register.  Family members should bring the voter certificate of the deceased and a death certificate, a letter from a traditional leader or religious leader as evidence.

The Commission will also process transfers for people who have moved away from the centres where they initially registered and they will be unable to go that centre on the polling day. These voters should go with their voter certificate to the centre where they wish to vote at and ask to be transferred to that centre. Without a voter certificate, a transfer will not be processed.

For more information contact the Commission on email ceo@mec.org.mw .
