ZEC has released the following statement advising the official dates for the inspection of the voters’ roll.
It is hereby notified for the general public that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) shall lay open the country’s Provisional Voters` Roll for inspection by the public from 19 May 2018 to 29 May 2018 in accordance with Section 21 of the Electoral Act [Chapter 2:13].
The purpose of the Provisional Voters’ Roll inspection is to allow members of the public to check if their details were correctly captured and if not, have the anomalies corrected.
The electorate should bring burial orders or deaths certificates for their deceased registered relatives so that they are removed from the Provisional Voters’ Roll.
Registrants may also take the opportunity to transfer their registration to appropriate polling stations based on new proof of residence. Once all the corrections have been taken on board, the Commission will then produce the Final Voters’ Roll that will be used in the forthcoming 2018 Harmonised Elections. This means that the Provisional Voters’ Roll may undoubtedly contain some errors and therefore registrants are urged to go and inspect their details to avoid disappointment on polling day. The Commission will shortly publicise the manner in which inspection shall be done.
The Commission urges all members of the public to take a keen interest in this important process by coming out in large numbers to inspect the voters` roll.
The Commission will open inspection centres at all polling stations. These centres will be published in the media and on the ZEC website: www.zec.gov.zw. The electorate can also call the following toll free numbers for more information:
- 08010265 for NetOne subscribers,
- 08080265 for Econet subscribers and
- 265 for Telecel subscribers.
ZEC encourages those who have not yet registered as voters to visit its 63 district and 10 provincial offices during working hours.
