The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) says it has implemented the use of Polling Station Streams in/at Polling Stations with More than 950 Registered Voters.

 

A Polling Stream is a Sub-Division of a Polling Station that has been Divided into more than one Voting Point to Quicken Voting.

 

This means that at Every Polling Station with Registered Voters above the 950 Threshold, a Stream is Created.

 

Commission Public Relations Manager, Margret Chimanse says the Electoral Body has Drawn Lessons from the Recent Past By-Elections and seeks to Address some of the Challenges that were Observed at Polling Stations.

 

Ms Chimanse has told 5FM Radio that some of the Challenges are; Voting until Late Hours, Long Queues, Security and Late Declaration of Election Results.
