NUS Open day 2019

The Office of the Electoral Commissioner is starting early on registering students that will turn 21 by election 2021.

The office of the Commissioner spent three days at the National University of Samoa to register the soon to be 21 in preparation for the 2021 General Election. This is part of efforts to register all persons eligible to vote for the 2021 General Elections.

The outreach was an attempt to raise awareness of the importance of exercising their rights to vote, and register voters over 21 who should vote in the next election.

This is the second year that the Office of the Electoral Commissioner implemented this programme to register voters who will be turning 21 by election 2021 but it is the first time they have entered the gates of the National University of Samoa.

Principal of registration for the office of the electoral commissioner Tiá Ituautagata said the outreach programme to schools, is part of the efforts to minimise the problem of overcrowding closer to the deadline of registration.

"Registration has been quite slow, students are not keen to register. However, we are hoping that after the three days that will change", said Ituautagata.

She said not many students were aware of the outreach programme, and perhaps this is the reason for the slow response.

Jay Mikaele a student from the Faculty of Business and Entrepreneurship said this program is very helpful for students of NUS because this is the easiest way for registering and prepare for the next election. He also said this is the contribution of the youth for our government's election. In order to register, voters need to have their passport and birth certificate handy.

Office of the Electoral Commissioner will continue with their outreach programme where they will visit other educational institution such as the University of the South Pacific at Alafua.
