SOLOMON Islands will continue to use the BIOMETRIC Technology first used in the 2014 national general elections registration process.

Speaking at the opening of the training, one SIEC’s commissioners, Ms. Taeasi Sanga said the biometric technology will again be used in the voter registration exercise.

Ms. Sanga said the biometric technology will reduce the incidence of multiple registrations that have occurred during previous exercises.

“Using biometric technology, the Commission hopes to produce a more credible register of voters for the 2019 National General elections,” Ms. Sanga said.

She encouraged participants of the training to involve all their community in engaging with them and to provide public awareness about the biometric voter registration program and voter information.

Ms. Sanga said she hopes the training package that is delivered will greatly assist those who are involved in the registration process know and perform their roles at a higher level.
