The exercise which kicked off on 22 August 2017 will end on 28 August, 2017.

According to the National Electoral Commission (NEC), "The purpose of displaying the Provisional Voters' Register is for all eligible Sierra Leoneans who took part in the registration process to confirm, correct, or include names that had been omitted during the process."

This exercise, the president said, was in line with Sections 31 to 37 of the Public Elections Act 2012 which mandated the National Electoral Commission (NEC) to conduct nationwide public inquiries for the settlement of any outstanding issues relating to the Provisional Voters Register.
