Zim Far on ICTs

Zim has adopted the BVR system, as part of advancements in ICTs

Zimbabwe has adopted the biometric voting registration (BVR) system, as part of advancements in information communication technologies (ICTs), in a move anticipated to ensure the security of elections, whose handling has always been a source of contestation.
The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) has urged citizens to embrace the development and called on all eligible voters to ensure their names would be on the new biometric voters’ roll.

Full adoption of the BVR, however, might take longer, as Zec is still to acquire the needed $55 million for the implementation of the whole project, something unlikely to happen before 2018, according to observers.
