Kathmandu, July 20

The Election Commission says it expanded the online voter registration system to five other districts outside the Kathmandu valley.

Last week, the commission launched the online voter registration system in three districts in the valley. But, from now onwards, the service is available in Jhapa, Morang, Kavre, Chitwan and Kaski districts also, according to the commission.

Those who do not have their names on the list yet but are qualified and interested to vote need to visit the commission site and apply for registration.

After submitting their details, the applicants need to print a pdf file they get online and submit it to the concerned district election office along with their citizenship certificate to complete the registration process.

The commission decided to launch the service online after there were reports that one had to stay in a queue for as long as four hours for the service physically.

The voter registration will continue until the announcement of the date for the federal and provincial elections.
