The displaced voters will be provided an opportunity to re register themselves in the voters’ lists.
Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya has decided to provide this opportunity for people who have been displaced due to the war. The persons who have been unable to register their names in the 2011 voters’ lists can fill an application and forward it to the office of the District Assistant Election Commissioners until 30th of November. The applications are available with Grama Seva Officers and at District Election Offices. The Elections Secretariat said that the special programme is being implemented from the 1st to the 15th of next month to ascertain the number of persons eligible to vote, amongst the persons staying in welfare camps.
