The receipt of the first batch of ballot papers and declaration of results forms (for district woman representative to parliament) was followed by the delivery of the same for Presidential, Parliamentary and Local Government Councils elective positions in partial consignments. The commission has since received the complete delivery of ballot papers for presidential and parliamentary (directly-elected and district women representative elections).
On the 26th of December, the Commission commenced packing of ballot papers and declaration of results forms for the elections to take place on 14th Jan. this year. The packaging period was expected to take a period of seven days (which would then have ended on 2nd or thereabouts). After this, the commission is expected to embark on the second round of packing materials for District/City Local Government Councils elections.
The ballot papers and declaration of results forms are the last items to be included into the polling kit; this being sealed and the serial numbers of the seals recorded and shared with political parties and candidates. The kit will be stored in their facility awaiting dispatch to the respective districts on a date which will be communicated to stakeholders.

The polling kit will include: ballot papers, declaration results forms, polling register (National Voters’ Register for the respective polling station), generic polling forms which include accountability of ballot papers, official report book e.t.c and generic material such as the ink pad, indelible ink, pens and others.
