Press Statement Marking the Official Launch of the Civic Voter Education and Gender Campaign for the 2020 Voter Roll Update Exercise

• Members of the Fourth Estate
• Partners
• Distinguished Ladies & Gentlemen;
 
In accordance with Article 80(c) of the Constitution of the Republic of Liberia, and Section 3.1(a) of the New Elections Law, the Commission will in September of this year conduct the Voter Roll Update exercise, in preparation for the December 8th Special Senatorial Elections and Referendum.
In pursuance thereof, we have assembled once again for the launch of another Civic and Voters Education (CVE) outreach. This occasion is an integral part of the electoral process because it marks the beginning of the CVE activities across the country.
 
Let me emphasize that the Voter Roll Update exercise is not a new voter registration. If you registered with the NEC in 2017 and there is nothing wrong with your card; you have not moved--changed your electoral district; or legally changed your name, this exercise will not apply to you. Rather, the update is intended to capture the following Liberians:
I. Those who did not register during the 2017 voters’ registration;
II. First time voters -- those who have attained the age of 18 or above since the 2017 registration;
III. Those who have moved, relocated and wish to be captured under a new voting precinct; and
IV. Those who misplaced or damaged their 2017 Voters’ cards.
The voter roll update will be conducted in 2080 centers/precincts across the country, and will run for 15 days (from September 11th to the 25th). There will be several teams of voter roll update personnel, and each will travel to assigned centers, remain there for three days to conduct the VRU, and then move to another update center within the same county to continue the exercise.
 
To ensure Liberians are informed about the Update exercise, the Commission has recruited, trained and will deploy 146 Civic Educators and 146 Gender Mobilizers across the country. The outreach will include the distribution of posters, flyers, banners, and the use of town criers. The Commission has also accredited and certificated over 300 Civil Society Organizations, Community Based Organizations and Faith Base
On this note and on behalf of the National Elections Commission, I hereby declare the Civic Voter Education activities for the 2020 Voter Roll Update duly launched.
Thank you
