Once you meet the criteria, you will be asked to show the necessary documents. The interview is conducted in the presence of the Registration Officer, the Registration Clerk, and the Scrutineers.

STEP 2:

The Registration Officer will enter the information in the system. This includes your photograph, your fingerprints (all ten fingers), and your electronic signature. Your documents will also be scanned.

STEP 3:

The Registration Officer/Registration Clerk will then print your receipt and it will be signed by the Scrutineer and the Registration Officer/Registration Clerk. You are then given your receipt which you must keep in order to receive your electoral identification card.

NB: If the scrutineers do not sign the receipt, it is still valid.

STEP 4:

Provisions will be made for the applicant’s name to be entered on a Supplementary List produced by the 15th of the following month in which the application was tendered and you should check the list at your constituency unit to make sure your name is on it.

STEP 5:

Once your name is on the Supplementary List, you will be subject to a period of claims and objections. During this period, other residents in the constituency will review the list. If there is an objection upheld by the registration officer, any person aggrieved by such a decision of the registration officer may appeal to the Commission in the manner prescribed in the Registration Regulations. This person may appeal a decision of the Commission, to a judge of the High Court in accordance with the law.

STEP 6:

Once the period of claims and objections has passed, the applicant’s name will then be entered on the PRELIMINARY LIST OF ELECTORS which is published by April 30 and October 31, and the REGISTER OF ELECTORS which is published by June 30 and December 31. Once you are on such a register, you are considered to be duly registered and eligible for an electoral identification card.

STEP 7:

You will be able to collect your electoral identification card by showing your registration receipt to the Registration Officer/Registration Clerk.
