A statement from the EC Monday said those who transferred their votes to enable them vote in the 2018 referendum on the creation of new regions will have to go through the process of transferring their votes again as the 2018 transfers were temporal.

Also, all security personnel who previously registered in the districts they reside are to contact the EC district offices for a transfer of their votes to enable them vote in the special voting exercise scheduled for December 10 ahead of the 2019 referendum.

“The general public is hereby informed that the period for application for transfer of votes, special voting and proxy is between 25th October and 4th November 2019,” the statement said.

The referendum would seek to, among other things, amend Article 55, Clause 3 of the 1992 constitution to enable political parties participate in district level elections and also offer the citizenry the opportunity to elect their own Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs).
