Over 250 000 registered to vote

The Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) has registered 256 564 eligible Namibian voters. A total of 255 830 Namibians registered in the country while 734 registered at diplomatic missions abroad during the supplementary registration period from 8 to 27 July 2019.
The commission is consolidating the voters' registration data in terms of voters who have turned 18-years-old since 2015, those who have moved to other constituencies and voters who applied for duplicate cards.
A provisional voters' register will be prepared and displayed at designated venues countrywide and abroad from 2 to 6 September for all eligible registered voters and political organisations to inspect and object against the inclusion of the name of any person(s) on the national register that is not entitled or qualified to be registered as a voter.
After the conclusion of the objection period, the number of registered voters recorded during the supplementary registration of voters might change following the ruling by a magistrate.
