The Elections Commission (EC) has launched a campaign to amend and update the voter registry in preparation for the upcoming presidential election in 2013.

According to a press release on the commission’s website, the campaign involves providing a list of eligible voters to every household in Male’.

The first phase of the campaign will target households in the Galolhu ward of the capital, during which a copy of registered voters of the household will be mailed through post on October 30 and 31.

The EC urged members of the public with a complaint regarding the registry to call the EC’s toll free number 1414.
