The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has set up 20,159 display centres across the country for the publication of preliminary electoral rolls for the general elections, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Sunday. 

As many as 2,037 display centres have been established in Punjab, 3,609 in Sindh, 3,040 in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and 1,473 in Balochistan.

The display centres would remain open from May 21 to June 19, 2022.

Pertinent to note that the display centres have been set up in districts in government buildings, especially government-run educational institutions.

If an eligible person’s vote was not registered, he can register his vote according to the permanent or temporary address of the Computerised National Identity Cards.

The name of irrelevant person or deceased person could be removed from preliminary voter lists, besides address written in CNIC could also be corrected in voter lists.

Government employees and their families can register and transfer their votes to a temporary address.

In addition to display centers, the forms were available with offices of District Election Commissioners, Assistant Registration Officers and on the Election Commission s website at www.ecp.gov.pk.

If anyone wanted to raise an objection over inclusion or exclusion of a name then he or she would have to submit an application through form-16 of the ECP.

For correction of address as per CNIC, the voters would have to submit the application through form-17 available at the display centre.
