96 actions organized throughout Macedonia, 4543 citizens checked their data

In direction to raise awareness of the citizens about their rights and civil responsibilities to check their data in the Voters' list, the Citizens Association MOST organized 96 local actions in all municipalities in R Macedonia. The aim of these actions was to encourage large number of citizens to check their data via the web page http://izbirackispisok.gov.mk. The data in the Voters List was checked by 4543 citizens.

The actions of MOST were conducted outside at open air and at time and locations where the crowds of the citizens are big. The actions took place in the period when the Voters List was placed on a public inspection, i.e. in the period 25 April to 4 May 2011. The accidental passers (citizens) were given opportunity to check their data within the legally prescribed deadline, to 4 May, and if there was a need to ask for changing of data in the Voters list in the branch offices of the State election commission.
