NDI Monitoring Direct Recording of BVR 2007

Creation of a voter list that is a "voter registry" independent from other registries (such as, the civil registry) involves collection of voter data by election authorities. However, rarely is an independent registry truly independent. There are almost always aspects that depend on the work of other institutions (e.g., the Ministry of Interior that issues ID cards or other proof of citizenship or the Transportation Department that issues driver's licenses, which are used by voters to prove their eligibility).

issuing birth, marriage or death certificates or some other means of recording the status of citizens
