NEC Introduces Personal Data Entry Portal

The National Elections Commission (NEC) has introduced for the first time an optional Personal Data Entry Portal, which would enable Liberians to submit their personal information online before going to voter registration centers to register. 

Announcing this last week Friday during the Bi-monthly Stakeholders briefing on the Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) Exercise, Chairperson Davidetta Browne Lansanah said the portal would reduce processing time of registrants at voter registration centers. 

“After a registrant submits his/her personal information online, they must go to the nearest voter registration center to complete registration. The NEC voter Registration workers will take their photo and capture thumbprints at the registration center. This process is optional,” Chairperson Lansanah explained.

Eligible voters can visit to start their data entry.

Chairperson Browne-Lansanah emphasized that the BVR Software has been tested and is ready for implementation. 

Speaking at the headquarters of the Commission on 9th Street, in Sinkor, she also disclosed that materials for centralized infrastructure (AFIS, ABIS, and Voter Management System Servers) have arrived in the country.

The Chairperson has been touring the 15 counties, meeting with local authorities, women, youths, people with disabilities, religious leaders, and joint security to solicit their support for the BVR process.

NEC has accredited 400 CSOs, CBOs, and FBOs to assist the NEC rollout nationwide Civic Voter Education campaigns, she disclosed.

Meanwhile, NEC has extended the deadline for all national, international, and media organizations to apply for accreditation to observe the 2023 Biometric Voter Registration Exercise to 17 March. 

“NEC will proceed as planned to commence the Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) exercise in the Phase One counties of Bomi, Grand Cape Mount, Grand Bassa, Gbarpolu, Margibi, and Montserrado from March 20 to April 9,” NEC disclosed.
