Kurdistan removes obstacles for diaspora votes in independence referendum

Kurdistan’s Independent High Elections and Referendum Commission (IHERC) removed a major obstacle to diaspora voters on Monday, reports Kurdstan24.net.

Though the diaspora is available to vote online, the need to produce certain documentation, a ration card, has been of concern for those in the diaspora.

In a press conference on Monday the spokesperson of the IHERC said that the ration card has been removed from the required list of documents for those looking to register online and currently living outside of the region.

A total of over 5 million people are currently eligible to vote in the Kurdish referendum.
