Voters' registers on display

The provisional national voters’ register and provisional local authority voters’ register are on display at constituency offices countrywide, among other places, until Friday, September 25. The full list of places where the list is available for inspection in office hours is listed under the Key Documents section of this website (see the Government Gazette that was issued on September 16). Voters can check their details are correct. If there are the names of people who are not entitled to vote or errors on the registers objections can be made.

What is the GRV all about?

The Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) is carrying out a General Registration of Voters (GRV) in the run-up to the 2014 National Assembly and Presidential elections to be held towards the end of the year. The voter registration period, which started on January 15th, will run until March 2nd 2014.
Based on the 2011 population census approximately 1.3 million Namibian citizens are 18 years of age or older and will therefore be eligible to vote in the 2014 elections. The current voter registration process is governed by the Electoral Act of 1992.
