The Civil Registry Department in Zimbabwe has announced a nationwide mobile registration exercise from 01 May to 31 July 2023. The exercise will target individuals who have reached the age of 18 and want to register as voters, as well as those who have lost their identity documents and require new ones for voting day.

In addition, eligible voters who need to obtain both birth certificates and national identity documents will benefit from the blitz. The teams will work from 7 AM to 5 PM on working days and from 7 AM to 7 PM at static registry offices. On weekends and public holidays, the documents will be issued between 7 AM and 4 PM.

The Civil Registry Department conducted a similar registration exercise last month, which had a $24 billion budget and was conducted in collaboration with the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission’s (ZEC) mobile biometric voter registration blitz. During the exercise, the daily working times were increased to 12 hours on weekdays and 10 hours on weekends to issue national documents required for voter registration.

The Civil Registry Department is optimistic that this exercise will be successful, and that more people will take advantage of this opportunity to register to vote and have their voices heard. Young people are encouraged to register to vote as their vote is their power, and it can change the future of the country.
