Please clarify the use of voters’ identification on polling day? Would persons be able to vote without using an ID card?
- Once the elector’s name is on the voter’s list and he/she has a valid Identification Card (I.D.) that person is allowed to vote – No checking of the Unit Register is required hence, the voting process can be completed in a short time.
- A person CAN vote without having an I.D. card once his/her name is on the voter’s list however, the Unit Register MUST be checked and once that persons registration records is located a comparison is made with the photo on the REGISTRATION RECORDS in order to verify the prospective voter. Thereafter, the elector is required affirmation (Form No. 53 – Oath of Elector without Identification Card). The information is subsequently recorded o the poll card and the polling station diaries.
