Monrovia, April 22, 2024: Liberia’s National Elections Commission (NEC) has ended the 2024 Senatorial and Representative By-Elections in Nimba and Grand Counties Electoral District #1, respectively.

Campaigns started on 4 April and climaxed on Saturday, 20 April 2024, ahead of the conduct of polls in both counties on 23 April 2024 by the NEC.

The by-elections are being held after then-sitting Nimba Senator Jeremiah Koung was elected as Liberia’s vice president last November, and incumbent Grand Gedeh County Electoral District #1 Representative E. Madison Gwion died after his re-election.

NEC chairperson Madam Davidetta Browne Lansanah has thanked voters in the two counties for their peaceful participation in the political campaign process.

Over the weekend, she addressed journalists in Monrovia at the end of Senatorial and Representative By-Elections in Nimba and Grand Gedeh Counties.

Madam Browne-Lansanah explained that the campaigns have ended, and no one will be allowed to continue campaigning activities.

The NEC boss added that everyone will be cooling off and will be getting ready to vote on 23 April 2024.

She admonished potential voters to go along with their voter ID cards on voting day only at the polling places where they first registered.

She disclosed that voting will commence at 8 AM and end at 6 PM on 23 April. She said all those who will be in line at 6 PM will be allowed to vote.

Meanwhile, Madam Browne-Lansanah has cautioned voters to return home after casting their ballots and wait for the NEC to announce the official results and the winners of the two by-elections.

“Remember, the election is everybody’s business. Let us keep the peace for you, your family, and Mama Liberia,” she pleaded.
