469 people registered to vote while 383 transferred to other Wards in Masvingo Province during the month of March 2022.
Masvingo Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) Deputy Provincial Election Officer (PEO) Maxwell Ncube said the numbers increased by 86 per cent compared to January. Said Ncube:
We are happy with the March turnout and maybe the increase in numbers of voter registration might be attributed to intensive voter education which was done this past month as we were moving towards the March 26 by-elections.
The numbers have actually increased with about 86 percent as compared to the month of January.
We are encouraging all eligible voters to come and register especially as we are moving towards the second phase of the mobile voter registration exercise that they should take the opportunity, come forward and register as we prepare for delimitation this year.
They should keep on coming to register as we will be in their communities and all our seven offices will be open during the normal working hours.
Ncube said that from the 469 people who registered to vote in March, there are 198 females and 271 males.
For the 383 who transferred, 163 are females and are 220 males.
ZEC launched the first phase of the mobile Biometric Voter Registration from 1 February to 28 February.
The second phase of the mobile registration blitz runs from 10 to 30 April 2022.
