Voter registration establishes the eligibility of individuals to vote.
In some regions, many eligible voters miss the opportunity to cast a ballot because they did not manage to register themselves among many reasons such as:
• Rural voters need to travel long distance to registration office;
• lack of identity proof;
• lack of awareness of individual rights to vote, etc.
Electoral Commissions around the world realized that the voter registration needs to be simple, secure and convenient. This will encourage eligible voters to come forward to vote.
Globally, Electoral process can be time consuming, and sometimes complex Voters are expecting governments to implement innovative registration and voting solutions.
