ZEC Fails To Give Voter Registration Confirmation Receipts To Aspiring Voters
The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) is experiencing what it calls a temporary shortage of thermal paper rolls used to print voter registration confirmation receipts at some centres.
In a statement issued on Monday, 20 March, ZEC Acting Chief Elections Officer, Jane Chigidji said the shortage of the paper should not discourage aspiring registrants from registering. Reads the statement:
The Commission is encouraging aspiring registrants to feel comfortable registering at some centres that would have temporarily run out of thermal paper roll used to print voter registration confirmation receipts.
The unavailability of a confirmation receipt does not affect one’s registration as a voter.
Those in need of the receipts will be advised in due course regarding when and where to collect them.
Any inconvenience caused is sincerely regretted.
Last week, ZEC announced the extension of the final nationwide mobile biometric voter registration exercise deadline by five days, from 21 March to 26 March.
