The Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone (ECSL) officially announced on the 13th of October, 2023 the discontinuation of payments conducted through Simkorpor Agents and Rokel Commercial Banks (RCB).

Commencing from October 16, 2023, ECSL will no longer employ this payment method.

To facilitate a seamless transition, ECSL will establish Special Payment Centers in districts where RCB does not maintain a branch. These districts encompass Port Loko, Kambia, Falaba, Tonkolili, and Karene, and this unique arrangement will persist until October 31, 2023.

ECSL strongly urges all ad-hoc personnel with outstanding payments in these specified districts to claim their entitled funds before the designated deadline.

Furthermore, ECSL has extended the deadline for payment claims until December 31, 2023. This extension applies to any RCB branch. It is vital to acknowledge that this represents the final date for claiming payments before all SIM Korpor e-vouchers expire.

Individuals who have been verified and have received an SMS containing their individual SIM Korpor e-voucher code are advised to present their valid government-issued identification, such as a national identity card, voter ID card, driver’s license, passport, or similar documents used during the verification process.

For any inquiries or assistance, individuals are welcome to directly contact ECSL. This announcement signifies a shift in payment methods for polling personnel and aims to ensure a streamlined process throughout the transition phase.
