Batswana will be given a third chance to register for the 2024 General Election after all legislators set aside partisan politics and hurriedly approved State President ministry’s P65 million budget request for another supplementary voters’ registration.

The first supplementary voters’ registration is currently underway and will end on March 15, and there were already fears for high incidence of voter apathy looking at the low turnout in the first voters’ registration.

Compared to the ongoing supplementary registration where eligible voters can only register to vote at the office of the principal registration officer for the constituency, the next supplementary registration will be conducted at all polling stations, both locally and abroad.
