The National Elections Commission (NEC) admitted that duplication and underage registration are being detected, and their voter information deactivated until further investigation.
The Commission said as it commences the final process of deduplication and adjudication of voters’ information, all ineligible registrants will be removed, noting that they will announce the preliminary figures for the number of persons registered in the coming days.
According to the NEC, the final process of deduplication and adjudication of voters’ information collected from the 2,080 voter registration centers across Liberia through its Central Management System (CMS), following the completion of data synchronization from the Phase Two counties.
The Commission in a release said in cases where there is/are alleged criminal motives, the registrant will be referred to the Ministry of Justice for immediate action.
Meanwhile, the Commission informs the public that the Exhibition of the Provisional Registration Roll (PRR) will commence on June 12-17, 2023 with all 2080 Voter Registration Centers opening simultaneously across the country.
“To ensure that only eligible voters remain on the voters’ roll, it is important that the general public bring forward all concerns during the exhibition exercise. All registered and eligible Liberians will be allowed to access the first draft of the Voter Registration Roll for verification, inclusion, and objection to information on the PRR,” the Commission assured.
The NEC extends gratitude to all electoral stakeholders, including local and international partners, the Ministry of Justice and the National Security Agencies, including the Liberia National Police and the Liberia Immigration Service, owners of properties used by NEC, all permanent and temporary elections workers and the People of Liberia for their tireless efforts and love for country demonstrated throughout the BVR process.
