The exhibition exercise is to be made available to the general pubic by the Electotal Commission as mandated. Those of us who usually forget that there is the need for one to inspect and confirm that the details captured of him/her during the registration period is needless can ignore this exercise at their own risk and when the unpleasant thing happens, please blame no one.
Regulation 22(1) and 23(1) of Constitutional Instrument (C.I. 91) mandates the Electoral commission to compile a provisional register of legible voters for each polling centre showing the particulars and potograph of each individual whose application was accepted, and display it for public inspection.
To this point, the Electoral Commission has announced to the general public that all exhibition centres(which are the same as the polling centres) open from 7:00AM to 6PM daily, from 18th July to 7th August 2016.
During this period of exhibition, both the 2016 PROVISIONAL Voters register and the 2015 FINAL Voters register would be made available at the centre for prospective voters to crosscheck their details as registered during the registration period. The opportunity is open for a registered voter to ask for amendments or insertions if need be.
Also, any registered voter may raise objections to names of unqualified persons on any of the Voter Register(both the 2015 final Register and the 2016 Provisional Register) at the centre.
