Close to 300 eligible voters were still queuing at various registration points in the //Kharas region after the supplementary registration of voters ended at 19H00 on Tuesday evening.
The exercise, which started last week Monday, also saw Namibians from all walks of life turning up in large numbers in other parts of the country to be listed as voters for the upcoming regional council and local authority elections.
Some eligible voters in Windhoek claimed on social media that they only managed to register in the early hours of yesterday after spending considerable hours in queues at various registration points.
The Kharas regional coordinator of the Electoral Commission of Namibia Augustinus Ucham said there has been a habit of registering at the eleventh hour.
He then raised the concern that this creates unnecessary pressure on both ECN officials and equipment.
