Deadline for voter registration is April 16th!

The USI are running voter registration drives on campuses all across Ireland in partnership with local Student Unions to register as many young people as possible before May 8th.

The voter registration deadline for Pennsylvania's May 15th primary is Monday.

Mohammad Yousuf Rashed, the head of the Free and Fair Election Forum of Afghanistan, an independent organization, said that of 7,300 polling stations due to be set up for the elections, 948 were in areas "out of government control".

Any person who turns 18 years of age on or before May 25th can register, and has the right to vote in the upcoming referendum.

Parliamentary elections should have been held in 2015.

Anyone not registered by the 8 May deadline will not be able to vote in the referendum.

Over the coming weeks the IEC hopes to register 13-14 million people at centres where they will later be required to cast their vote, a move which officials hope will reduce the risk of ballot-box stuffing.

Afghan security forces have been tasked with protecting polling centres, even as they struggle to get the upper hand against militants on the battlefield.
