Promoting democracy in Namibia

Dec 2 2014: Although the national turnout out figure is 72%, there are a number of constituencies with over 100% turnout or almost 100% turnout. Most are in the far north of the country. This is possible due to the tendered votes system which allows Namibian voters to cast their ballots anywhere in the country and not just in their home constituency. In the interests of transparency, Election Watch is requesting the ECN to release the number of tendered votes cast in each constituency.
