The National Elections Commission (NEC), through a release issued on June 19, informs the public that the replacement exercise for lost or damaged Voter Registration Cards, (VR Cards) began this Friday, 21 June 2019.

NEC announces that the replacement of lost or damaged VR Cards will end on Tuesday, 25 June 2019.

The Commission informs the public that two replacement centers have been set-up at its lower Magisterial Office in Brewerville and Upper Magisterial Office in Bensonville both in Montserrado County.

The publication comes barely two weeks ahead of two major by-elections scheduled to take place in Montserrado County on July 8, to fill vacant seats in District 15 (Lower House) and Montserrado County (Upper House).

The NEC reminds the public that this process is consistent with the 1986 New Elections Law Section 3.5:2 which says, in the event of loss or destruction of the registration card, and after proof has been established, the registrar shall issue a new card for a minimum fee of five, $(5) dollars to be paid in the Internal Revenue.
