This information note, developed by ESCAP with support from the Regional Steering Group for CRVS in Asia and the Pacific and other partners, highlights the connection between civil registration and voter registration.

Civil registries can provide the most current data for voter lists, critical cost-savings for electoral management bodies, while supporting inclusiveness, accuracy and election legitimacy. Civil registry data is the most advantageous method of compiling voter registration data, and the best way that governments can ensure they are getting every voter in the picture.
