Zimbabwe Kicks Off Voter Registration Blitz

  • Studio 7

Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.

Zimbabwe on Tuesday kicked off its voter registration “blitz” throughout the country, in what officials hope will be a signal for hundreds to hurry to various centers to register to vote in the 2018 general elections.

The voter registration process, which was officially launched by President Robert Mugabe at the State House in September, aims to enroll seven million eligible voters into the system, before the end of January.

Following disputed outcomes in previous elections and allegations of voter fraud, the country has ditched the old paper system in favor of the fool-proof Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) kits, which will use finger prints, eye pupils and other tamper-proof ways to ensure that only those registered can vote, and only once.

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has secured 3,000 BVR kits for the registration process, and will be rotating them around the country, during its four-phase registration period.

The first phase of the registration process kicked off Tuesday, October 10 and will end on Wednesday, October 25th. Three other phases will follow through December 19th. Registration will take place in 63-districts in all of the country’s 10 Provinces.
