It is super important to note that in the upcoming general and presidential elections voting is very specific to respective polling stations. In the past, you could go to any polling station within your constituency but this year your registration is specific to a particular polling station. Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has recruited the services of technology so that prospective voters can quickly confirm where they will vote.
How do I check the polling station?
- You simply need to follow this link or just type the address: http://bvrinspection.zec.org.zw:4328/zecvr2/
- When the page opens, you put your surname first
- And then you put your National ID or the serial number you were given when you registered for the BVR (Biometric Voter Registration)
- Then hit enter, and you see for yourself if you are registered
- The following info should display
If any of the information displayed is incorrect, you need to visit the ZEC offices immediately.
Sometimes you won’t be able to check your details because the website will be down. Perhaps because of too much traffic.
What if you don’t have internet?
You can also check the accuracy of your BVR by dialing *265# on Econet, Netone, and Telecel mobile phones. Ypu will be prompted for your National ID number which should be entered in the format they give as example inclding the ‘-‘ characters. After that you will be prompted to enter your year of birth.
You will get a confirmation message that gives your registration details. The confirmation message will include your polling station
Your registration slip should have this info
When you registered to vote you were given a little slip that has all the details here. It’s a good idea to take this with you to the polling station on Monday just in case you need to prove that you registered and were assigned that polling station. If you lost it, don’t worry, your ID will be enough.
Just remember that this time around, the voter’s roll is polling station specific. Therefore, if for any reason you are told you have coming to the wrong polling station, quickly go to the correct one, There’s no point arguing.
