Voter registration a must: Hail official

HAIL: The local election committee in Hail has revealed that voter registration is a pre-condition to cast the ballot, while emphasizing on enrolling themselves in the voter registry, which begins on Aug. 22 and continues for 21 days.
Saad Al-Thuweini of the media directorate in Hail municipality said that a voting register will be allocated to both men and women in election centers, saying that every citizen is eligible to vote if he or she aged above 18 years.
He said that voters should be born on June 25, 1998 or before, and should be eligible, the criteria for which is that they should not be in military service at the time. Voters should be residents of the election constituency and if they are living in more than one constituency, they must choose which one to vote in.
Al-Thuweini said that the documents that all voters should take to the registry include a national ID, a document to prove their place of residence such as an ownership deed to the house they live in or a contract that is approved by the mayor and stamped by the neighborhood police or a copy of public service bills showing their place of residence.
If the voter is an employee of the private sector, the document should be approved by the Chamber of Commerce, with a declaration showing their place of residence, a copy of the family registry accredited from the governorate, the center or from the mayor. He added that no one will be allowed to take part in the voting process unless they meet all such requirements.
Al-Thuweini further said that if the voter lives with someone else, he should present documents that prove his or his roommate's place of residence, adding that citizens registered in the voting schedules in previous elections don’t have to register again, unless they have changed their residence to another constituency.
