The ECP has also removed restrictions on voter lists across the country, allowing eligible individuals to register, transfer, or correct their votes until October 25. The suspension of electoral rolls, which had been in effect since July 20, 2023, has been lifted.

All eligible citizens are urged to ensure the correctness of their voter registration, modifications, and transfers, and align their particulars with their computerized national identity card details by October 25, 2023.

Voters must register at their permanent or current address, as indicated on their CNIC. Voting from a third address is prohibited. However, government employees posted in a different district or province can register their vote and their family’s at the post office in their new location.

District Election Commissioners serve as Registration Officers for all districts in Pakistan, extending comprehensive support for voter registration to all citizens. The process for registration and vote transfer is facilitated through the use of Form 21, which can be accessed on the Election Commission’s website at www.ecp.gov.pk and is available for download.

The Election Commission has appealed to all eligible Pakistanis, encompassing women, youth, persons with disabilities, and minority communities, to prioritize the registration of their votes and those of their family members.

After October 25, 2023, neither new voter registrations nor vote transfers will be permitted.
