The Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (ECSL) together with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are set to start verification of all ad-hoc staff starting from Monday, 21st August ending on Saturday, 26th August 2023.

The exercise is intended to make it easier for all polling staff who worked during the 24th June 2023 polls to verify their details for the payment of their allowances,” ECSL said.

The Electoral Commission notified ad-how staff to visit ECSL District Offices for verification between 9 in the morning and 5 in the evening.

The Commission urged all ad-hoc staff to bring along their signed and stamped contract together with government issued ID cards and a valid telephone number which will be used to communicate payment notice.

The ECSL said verified ad-how stuff will receive their payment seven days after the verification process.

Following successful verification of ad-hoc personnel and review by relevant authorities, ad-hoc staff will receive SMS on their phones containing an e-voucher code from Rokel Commercial Bank at least seven (7) days after verification is completed,” ECSL said.

Meanwhile, the verification process for Bonthe and Karene Districts will be done in eight (8) days.

They advised ad-hoc staff to take the code to any Rokel bank or their Mobile Sim Korpor cash out office or designated cash out point at ECSL training centres that will be announced.

They urged all ad-hoc staff to note that all verification will be concluded by Saturday August 26 and non shall be conducted after that.
