Youths across Zimbabwe have urged their peers to take advantage of the massive voter registration blitz by Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) to get their names on the voter’s roll.
The new bio-metric voter registration exercise started early this month and 2 508 registration centres have been established countrywide. Young people who spoke during consultative meetings held across different provinces in Zimbabwe representative of youth organisations in Zimbabwe challenged youth to take advantage of these registration centres and register to vote in the 2018 harmonised elections.

 

“Gone are the years where the youth comfortably neglected the importance of voting hencewe are encouraging the youths to visit these registration centres in their numbers and shape their future by registering to vote”.
“The youth can create a future that is aligned to their beliefs and values by taking advantage of their right to vote and there is also a need for the youth to realise that their voice is an important one as democracy does not work without citizen participation”.

“Shape your future as young people and let your voices be heard by registering to vote”.
“When youth fail to register to vote and to vote itself they are yielding the ultimate power to adults to make decisions about the leaders and laws that will shape and lead the society for a long time”.
“As youth we can use your young bulk population at the ballot box to shape the socio-economic decisions about your country”.
