NEC Adjusts 2020 VRU Timeline
The National Elections Commission (NEC) informs the Public, especially eligible voters that the 2020 Voter Roll Update (VRU) will start on Friday September 11, 2020 instead of September 1, 2020.
The process will run for 15 days, from September 11-25, 2020.
Meanwhile, the NEC says the date for both the Special Senatorial Election (SSE) and the constitutional Referendum remains the same, Tuesday December 8, 2020.
The Commission also reminds the pubic that the Voter Roll Update process will be mobile; meaning the Commission’s Team of Registrars will move in sequence from one Center to another within the 15 days of the process.
The NEC emphasizes that each Team will spend ONLY THREE DAYS at each of the 2080 Registration Centers across the Country.
Each Team will cover a maximum of four Centers. A Team will be led by a Supervisor. The rest are a Registrar, Clerk, Shader, and Photographer.
The NEC is urging all Liberians of voting age, including those who have turned 18yrs and above, those who have relocated from their previous voting places to another, those who have lost their voting cards, and those who did not register during the last voter registration in 2017, to turn out to update their voting records from Friday September 11-Friday September 25, 2020.
Meanwhile, NEC says it will in the coming days publish and air the Movement Plan for the VRU.
