The general public is further informed that, during the voter register compilation exercise, the Commission has quarantined 53 of the new registrants (23 males and 30 females) in Lilongwe North West Constituency. This is because the National Registration Bureau (NRB) quarantined these registrants on suspicion that they were minors. No new registrants have been quarantined in Karonga Central Constituency and Makhwira South ward.
The quarantined names, although they were registered by MEC and were issued a voter certificate, will not vote on 10 November, 2020. Their names have not been added to the voters’ register and will appear in the Exceptions Report, appended to the voters’ register. The Exceptions Report bears the details of the quarantined names including photographs. The centres affected are as follows:

NO. OF VOTERS
The Commission is appreciative to all stakeholders that worked with it in reaching out to the people urging them to go and register or verify their registration details.
