1 Million Cambodian Migrant Workers in Thailand Might Miss Voting Registration
About 9.6 million Cambodians are now eligible to vote, according to the National Election Commission for the next commune elections scheduled for 4 June, 2017.
Although registration procedures have been somewhat simplified and a new electronic voter list will replace the old controversial one, eligible voters currently working in Thailand, estimated to be around 1 million could be disenfranchised as they must return to Cambodia in order to register to vote. Failure to do so, will eliminate their right to vote in the 2017 commune elections.
