THERE will be ‘No Out-Of-Constituency’ voting in the upcoming National General Election (NGE) for 2019.

This is a good reminder for many in Solomon Islands who are from observation, have the idea that they can only cast their votes from the main Capital, Honiara.

According to the Solomon Islands Electoral Commission (SIEC) on their social media page, this method needs proper planning, resources and budget.

“There are also issues such as risk of double voting associated to such system, if not well planned.

“SIEC acknowledges the need to have this system in place and is working to ensure this is possible in the future.

“For the 2019 NGE, voters are informed that there will be no out of constituency voting therefore, they have to return to their constituencies to cast their votes,” posted SIEC.
