The National Elections Commission (NEC) has successfully conducted the exhibition of the provisional voter register from 12 to 18 June 2017 in all of the 2080 exhibition centers across the 15 counties of the country.
This activity enabled voters to verify information about their identity data, including county, registration center name, date of birth, and the voter’s ID number, to correct any information, and confirm registration to vote in the upcoming 2017 presidential and legislative elections. The exhibition process allows for the voter to be included on the Provisional Registration Roll if erroneously omitted. The EU-funded UNDP project Support to the 2015-2018 Liberia Elections Cycle supported NEC in training of the exhibition staff and voter awareness program during the exhibition period.
The project “Support to the 2015-2018 Liberia Elections Cycle” responds to the needs and builds capacity of the NEC to deliver transparent and credible elections. A total of nine outputs aim to increase the long-term capacity by improving training tools and methods, and assisting the NEC to introduce modern administration systems. The project also supports the NEC in producing a new voter register in advance of general elections in October 2017, increases the role of women in elections and political life, supports civic education activities and strengthens the NEC capacity to engage stakeholders and resolve disputes in an effective and transparent manner. This project is implemented by UNDP and is funded by a joint basket fund supported by our partners, the European Union, Sweden, Canada and Republic of Ireland. It is coordinated through the One UN policy with other United Nations agencies.
