#LiberiaElections: All Legitimate Voters will Vote - NEC Chairman

The National Election Commission (NEC) has assured Liberians carrying legitimate voters registration cards full participation in the electioneering process.

The Commission's comment comes in the wake of concerns raised by a section of the voter population who could not find their names names and photos on the voters' roll during the recently held exhibition.

At a News Conference on Wednesday June 14, 2017, Chairman of NEC, Jerome Korkoya stated "People with the issue of unavailability of photos during these exhibition periods should go to the various magistrates for photo taking and every Liberian who has voter card will vote. The errors wouldn't affect you."

"Please help us to explain to the people the only reason we are holding exhibition is to correct the errors." He added

The National Elections Commission (NEC) on June 12, 2017 commenced the Exhibition of the Provisional Voter Roll at all 2080 Exhibition Centers (formerly Voter Registration Centers) across the country.

Liberia is scheduled to go to the polls on 10 October to elect a new president to replace the incumbent President Sirleaf.
