Sierra Leone’s electoral body is set to begin a new voter registration exercise this weekend where all eligible voters are required to register again.
People are required to produce their national identity cards to register as voters.
Phase one of the exercise runs up to 17 September with the second phase expected to begin on 20 September to 4 October, the Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone (ECSL) wrote on Twitter.
Over 3,500 centres have been mapped for the exercise across the country.
President Julius Maada Bio has urged Sierra Leoneans aged 18 years and above to come out and register to vote.
The country is set to hold a general election on 24 June next year.
