2017 Electoral roll update

NCD voter number expect to increase

He said in 2012 a total of 253,870 eligible voters were registered on the NCD Roll and PNGEC expects slight increase in the new enrolments as most residents are existing electors who have only changed locations within the city limits.

Gamato urged NCD residents to make sure they receive correct information and messages on the enrolment update exercise from the Electoral Commission as the election management body and no one else.

“It is illegal for people to conduct awareness on election without the authorization of PNG Electoral Commission,” Gamato warned.

Eligible voters must confirm their names: Gamato

In preparation for the 2017 National General Election, the PNG Electoral Commission started its electoral roll update for voters in the nation’s capital on Monday and will run for two weeks.    

“Electoral roll update work has already started in the city and city residents have 14 days to turn up at the selected enrolment locations to ensure their enrolment details are correct and register if their names are not on the roll,” Gamato said.
