Please clarify the use of voters’ identification on polling day? Would persons be able to vote without using an ID card?

  1. Once the elector’s name is on the voter’s list and he/she has a valid Identification Card (I.D.) that person is allowed to vote – No checking of the Unit Register is required hence, the voting process can be completed in a short time.
  2. A person CAN vote without having an I.D. card once his/her name is on the voter’s list however, the Unit Register MUST be checked and once that persons registration records is located a comparison is made with the photo on the REGISTRATION RECORDS in order to verify the prospective voter. Thereafter, the elector is required affirmation (Form No. 53 – Oath of Elector without Identification Card). The information is subsequently recorded o the poll card and the polling station diaries.
