Get Ready for Voters' Registration from May 16th to 30th

As the upcoming elections, both partial and general, draw near, the Electoral Commission’s office is gearing up for the registration of voters whose names are not listed on the electoral roll.

Mauritians aged 18 and above are invited to log onto the commission’s website to verify their status. If they do not figure on the list, they are requested to visit the centers in their locality for registration between May 16th and 30th.

To avoid any inconvenience on election day and to ensure that every citizen can exercise their civic duty in peace, each Mauritian is encouraged to check if they are registered on the electoral roll and register if not.

The registration process commences on Thursday, May 16th, and will continue until May 30th.

The voting centers in Mauritius’s 20 districts will be open from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm on weekdays and from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturdays.

Those in Rodrigues, the 21st district, will be open from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm on weekdays and from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturdays.
