The Elections Office has identified over 1,000 duplicate files in the electronic voter registration database.

Electoral Reform Permanent Secretary Mere Vuniwaqa says these duplicate files concern people who have registered more than once.

Vuniwaqa says in one instance – one name was registered 10 times.

She says once they have cleared out all the duplicate files – they will then put together the provisional roll.

“So we will be out in the media – the radio, papers and TV – to let people know what places they can go to – to check their names in the roll that will be made available. We have identified over 1,000 places where these centers will be and that list will be made public.”

488,000 people registered in the first phase of registration.
