Roll update ends on eve of writs issue

The Electoral Roll updating exercise officially ends on the eve of the issue of Writs for the 2017 National Elections.

Electoral Commissions, Patilias Gamato, said the Roll updating exercise will conclude on April 19.

However, he says they will allow for verifications, for example, if the name of a person on the Roll has died.

He said the final Electoral Roll should then be released before polling.

“Hopefully before June 24 that’s before the polling we should print the final Roll I’ll get it certified and distribute it for use in the elections,” he said.
