ECN confirms voter registration figures

The Electoral Commission of Namibia released final figures for the number of registered voters in Namibia on November 7 2014, following the General Registration of Voters (GRV) from January 15 to March 2 2014 and the Supplementary Registration of Voters from September 8 to 20 2014.
According to the ECN, a total of 1,241,194 voters registered for the November 28 elections. The figure includes 3,368 voters registered at Namibia’s foreign missions.
Among factors highlighted by the ECN was the high level of young people who registered. Some 45 percent of those registered were reported to be between the ages of 18 and 32. Some 74,308 more women than men registered with the highest variances in favour of women being in the northern regions of Omusati, Ohangwena, Oshana, Oshikoto, and Kavangos East and West.
