Kathmandu, June 7
The voters’ list for the upcoming provincial and federal elections, due to be held in November, will be updated from June 15.
The Election Commission had stopped taking new registration after the date for the local elections were announced on February 8. But, the commission now says the voters’ list updating has reopened targeting the next elections.
Nepali citizens who are 18 and above can register their names at the provincial and district election offices, district administration offices and area administration offices.
The commission has stated that applications can be submitted to the concerned election offices for registration of names, correction of errors in details, removal of names from the voters’ list, change of address, change of polling station and removal of duplicate names.
The commission says people living outside their districts can register their names within the districts they are currently in, and the commission will later forward the details to their own polling stations.
Similarly, those who do not have their names on the voters’ list despite having a voter card can also register their names, says the spokesperson of the Election Commission, Shaligram Sharma Poudel.
