Elections 2018


Procedure for Voters' Registration


For the voters' registration, the Embassy has prepared a pre-registration form, which can be accessed, completed and submitted online. This pre-registration, as the name suggests, is not the actual voters' registration, but is necessary for the Electoral Team to organize and conduct the registration more efficiently and effectively. 

Once a voter has submitted the pre-registration form, the Electoral Team will respond and provide him or her with the queue number, time slot and venue for registration. This will allow the voters to organize their trip to the voting centers well ahead of time, facilitate a more speedy registration and avoid long waiting time. 

Additionally, and more importantly, the pre-registration and queue numbering system is intended to avoid the gathering of large number of people at the Embassy's premise. The Embassy is located at a premise not owned by the Embassy. The Embassy is located at a rented space on a premise shared with many other organizations, and it is important that the Embassy ensures the voters' registration does not interfere with the operation of other organizations having offices in the same premise. 


The voters' registration process will be conducted in accordance with the following procedure:


Desk I - Verification of Documents:

1. Voter presents the documents required for registration;

2. An Electoral Officer verifies the documents for compliance with the requirements and, where necessary, requests that documents be completed.
