Where to register

This election is different to previous elections. People will vote and be counted in small areas called constituencies. So for the first time ever, you will have the opportunity to choose a Member of Parliament who really knows your area and how life is there.

No one who lives outside your area should be able to vote for your Member of Parliament. This means that everyone must register to vote where they live.

But it isn’t enough to register in your constituency.

The list of voters NEC collects this year is also going to be used for the local elections in 2008. This means that you need to register and vote in a even more local area of the constituency you live in. This is called a Section (or an Area if you live in the Western Area or townships of Sierra Leone).
