Voter Registration Project
successful voter registration process and increase number of people who will
participate in the elections, HDIP managed to recruit 120 youth members in both
Gaza and West Bank (20 members of Gaza youth networks and 100 from WB youth
networks who took part in the last youth camp) to run out this campaign. They
covered all districts of WB and Gaza specially Jerusalem which due to current
political situation might have limited participation in voter registration.
Those 120 youth members focused on motivating people to register for election.
First they knocked doors in villages and told them about elections, informed
them about the closest voter registration centers and dessiminated election
promotion materials. In addition, they daily visited the voter registration
centers to see how the process was going and whether those people whom they
motivated registered or not. They made a step by step evaluation of the progress
in the registration process. At the end of the voter registration period, youth
members will provided HDIP with a full data base information regarding voter
list in terms of who registered, percentages of those who registered for
election, women participation, rural participation and political involvement.
This formed as primary information about the coming elections and who from
political parties will participate and how much support they already gain from
those who already registered for elections. This had also encouraged youth
members who worked the voter registration process to carry out awareness
meetings with people about elections in terms of: importance of single votes,
who should we vote for and how can we select people according to programs and
