Voter Registration and the Voter List Are Still a Challenge in Cambodia

The fundamental purpose of a voter‐registration system is to facilitate the rigth to cast the ballot – to ensure that only the people entitled to vote in a given jurisdiction can do so, and that they are able to vote only once. Voter lists may not be essential to accomplishing that purpose, but they are almost universally recognized as the preferred method in the United States. North Dakota is the only exception, replying identification documents instead of voter registration. Voter lists may also be used for other purposes. For example, electoral administrators can use the lists to determine suitable locations for siting polling stations, to measure voter turnout, and so forth. Political parties and candidates also use the lists for campaign‐related activities. However, the pattern of voter‐registration practices has developed to maintain oversight and serve the public interest.
