The provisional voter list is still on display in all the polling stations in Western and Choiseul provinces.
Omission and Objection period is also open until 1st of October, 2022.
Registrants from Choiseul and Western Provinces who have just registered or updated their voter registration details in the August voter registration update are encouraged to must check the provisional voter list to make sure that their registration details are correct.
Make sure your name appears or is not wrongly placed in another village.
If you checked but your name is missing from the voter list for your community or village or your name appears on the list for another village, make sure you submit an omission notice form to notify commission of this error so that it can be corrected.
If you checked but see someone’s name on the provisional voter list, maybe a person who is from another province, someone who has died or is not a citizen or under the age of 18, do submit an objection notice form to inform commission of such an inaccuracy or ineligibility so that commission can have their name deleted from the list.

The Revising Officers and Assistant Revising Officers will be trained in the next couple of days at Gizo in western province.
