Despite awareness programmes on Radio Tuvalu about election procedures, some voters are attempting to exploit the law and register in two different electoral districts.
Fenui News reports that cleaning up double registrations in the voter registration list has been one of the complex duties carried out by registrations officers.
Registration officer for the Funafuti Kaupule Uluao Lauti confirmed that less than a hundred duplicated registrations have been found during the screening, which contradicts with election laws.
Section 91 of Tuvalu’s Constitution allows a voter to vote in only one electoral district, says State Counsel Nele Semu Tusipepe.
Lauti said they found that many people are registered under two different surnames or used Tuvaluan name on one registration form and the English name in another electoral district.
He said if a person with two registration turns up to vote the second term on election day, Police will be informed to stop the voter from casting his/her vote.
The small island nation of Tuvalu will go to the polls on 19 March.
