In Serbia on August 10-22, 2012, discussions were held with 14 municipality offices and a small number of other electoral stakeholders on the status, issues and considerations related to voter registration.

Voter registration in Serbia is conducted under the provisions of the Law on The Single Electoral Roll as of December 27, 2011. This law defines the voter registration process based on a permanent register that is updated continuously. This law also mandates that the register be maintained as an electronic database with voter information entered by municipal/town administrations, as per the voter's permanent residence. Separate and additional provisions are made for absentee voters, voters residing abroad and internally displaced persons.

This report provides an outline of the discussion surrounding the new voter registration process and presents a series of recommendations for developing plans for improving the process. Read more about voter registration in Serbia.
