Vanuatu to roll out ID verification system for coming elections
TAGS

In 2019, the CRVS Department and the Vanuatu Electoral Office (VEO) established a joint nationwide project to undertake combined civil and voter registration, issuing National ID cards.
A new identity checking system has been established in Vanuatu for coming provincial elections to in May. Scanners will be used to double-check voter's identity and voting eligibility based on their national ID cards.
This comes as the latest development in the Vanuatu Electoral Environment Project (VEEP), supported by UNDP and funded by the Government of New Zealand. It aims at contributing to Vanuatu's democratic development by strengthening institutions and building public trust. This project also plans to fully integrate civil and voter registration, with electoral rolls to be extracted from the civil registry database.
