The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission announced that it does not have a Voters Roll and that all prospective voters who want to exercise their right to vote in the 2018 harmonised election will have to be registered using the Biometric Voting Registration (BVR) system.

Just for emphasis, this means that everyone needs to go and register to vote and please try to do it as early as possible.
