Mozambique Municipal & National Elections

Nearly two-thirds of the 30.3M Mozambicans live in rural areas. They face tremendous logistical and communication challenges when it comes to being able to access voter registration for municipal and general elections.

With dual election needs: municipal (2018) and presidential (2019), Mozambique needed a customized biometric voter registration and verification solution that would be mobile, reliable, accurate, and deliver a secure voters Registration Roll. 

Gratifying to provide citizens of Mozambique the opportunity to register for voting when two-thirds of the population live in rural areas.
