The Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (EC-SL) has expressed commitment to the timeline for completing the voter registration process and publish the Final Voters Register (FVR).

The commitment came following a successful completion of the voter registration field data capture exercise on 8th October, 2022.

The Commission extends appreciation to the public for participating in the process in a peaceful and orderly manner.

The Commission conveys special thanks and appreciation to the entire staff, permanent and adhoc, who in diverse ways contributed to this national exercise.

The EC-SL continues to appreciate the Government of Sierra Leone for the timely disbursement of funds; the political parties for their cooperation, National Civil Registration Authority for their collaboration, Political Parties Registration Commission, and the Security Sector for their respective supports to the EC-SL.

Following the completion of the field data capture, the public is reminded about the following next steps before the Commission would release the Final Voters Register (FVR) certified for the June 2023 elections:

i. Data consolidation into a single unit.

ii. De duplication, this is the stage where duplicate registrants’ data are eliminated.

iii. Publish the Provisional Voters Register (PVR) to the public.

iv. The Exhibition Exercise of the Provisional Voters Register to allow registrants who took part in the registration exercise to confirm their details and/or correct errors.

The Commission will use the exhibition exercise to conduct Inquiries and appropriately address all Rejections, Objections and Appeals.

v. Update the Provisional Voters Register and release the Final Voter Register.

The Commission remains committed to its legal mandates and guiding principles and therefore appeals to the public to be patient and trust the process.
