The Directorate General of Civil Status (DGCS) has released the preliminary Electoral Lists for Lebanese citizens to review and check their eligibility to vote in the upcoming 2022 elections.
The lists can be accessed online on the Directorate’s website from February 1st until March 1st.
Follow these steps to know if you’re eligible to vote and to review your details on the lists:
Go to the Electoral Lists page on the DGCS website, here.
Select the required details using the drop-down lists (governorate, district, village/neighborhood, gender, sect, and civil registry number). These details can be found on your identification documents (national ID or passport).
Click “Search” (بحث).
Search for your name in the resulting list. If it’s there, you’re eligible to vote. Make sure to check the details for any errors or misspellings.
Alternatively, you can enter your national ID number (0000xxxxxxxx) in the dedicated field and click “Search” to view your details individually, instead of searching through your locality’s list.
In case you find a mistake, you can report it to the DGCS by downloading and filling a correction-request form, here, then submitting it to your civil registration office, or to the Lebanese embassy or consulate if you live abroad.
