Voter registration starts today


09-January-2012

Stations across Mahe, Praslin and La Digue will remain open up to Sunday January 22, and will receive members of the public from 3pm-6pm Monday to Friday, and from 10am-2pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

However, those same stations will be open from January 23 to January 26 between 3pm and 6pm for the purpose of receiving any claim or objection only.

There will also be a station at the electoral commission’s office, Room 203, Aarti Building, Mont Fleuri, where all eligible voters, irrespective of their constituency, can go and verify their names. This particular station opens from 10am-noon and from 1pm-6pm Monday to Friday, and from 10am-2pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Members of the public are asked to bring along necessary papers and documents when they come to verify their names, especially those who have just turned 18, those who have just married or changed their names through divorce, and those who have been living abroad. ID cards are acceptable for most people, but marriage certificates or divorce papers should be brought to show changes of name in those cases.
