Islamabad (April 09, 2018): The National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has set the April 24 last date for the change in voters details.
The authority said that April 24 is the last date, after which any change to the voter details or the constituency will not be possible.
NADRA has also handed over the list of 104.26 million voters to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).According to the electoral authority, the voters can confirm their registration and acquire details of their constituency on the mobile phones by sending an text message on 8300.
Nadra also said that so far, only 0.3 million people have availed the service.
In a statement, NADRA said that voters can contact their nearest display centre to have their voting constituency updated.
Earlier this month, NADRA informed the top court that a preliminary software has been developed to extend the electronic voting facility to overseas Pakistanis in general elections.The judges observed that the development may be shared with all other stakeholders including Election Commission of Pakistan and parliamentarians so that the milestone may be achieved in time.
In January, NADRA apprised the apex court that a three-tier electronic mechanism – named the Internet Voting System for Overseas Pakistanis – will be developed at a cost of Rs150 million and within a period of four months. The ECP would provide the required funds for the project.
The three-tier internet voting mechanism includes voter registration and verification.
