05 November 2019 | Politics
According to a statement issued by the ECN only 8 653 voters are millennials, those born since 2000, and 403 106 registered voters are born-frees - those born after independence.
The three regions with the highest number of registered voters are Khomas, Ohangwena and Omusati.
The regions with the lowest number of registered voters are Omaheke, Zambezi and Hardap. A total of 717 809 registered voters are female and 640 659 are male.
“The preparation of the final voter register required the execution of several integrity checks, which included the automatic fingerprints identification system matching to remove duplicate entries, plus manual adjustments in the case of similar fingerprints, as well as removal of deceased persons,” said Mujoro.
He added that the provisional voter register was displayed for inspection from 2 until 6 September in terms of the Electoral Act.
“No objections were received by the commission during this period,” he said.
The ECN also provided a regional breakdown of voters, as well as the demographics of the voting population.
There will be close to 2 400 polling stations in all 121 political constituencies on election day on 27 November.
Close to 13 000 polling officials will be deployed, and around 2 445 ballot units and the same number of control units will be used.
The ECN will put up a central election results centre at its head office in Windhoek where all votes from constituencies will be collated and from where the results will be announced within two days after the elections.
The centre will have two wings: an east wing where equipment like fax machines will be set up through which results will be received. The other wing will be the media centre.
There will be two big screens in the main hall where results in different formats will be displayed. The results will simultaneously be fed to media houses, and will be published on the ECN's online platforms.
