The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) aimed to enhance the credibility of its General Elections by transitioning from a traditional paper-based Voters’ Roll to a state-of-the-art biometric database. Using customised biometric enrolment kits, the ZEC ensured that all eligible voters could register for the 2018 General Elections. A verified Voters’ Roll containing 5,6 million voters led to the highest voter turnout since the country transitioned to democracy.
