Young people urged to ensure they are registered to vote

Over the next two months authorities hope to register as many as 14 million adults at more than 7,000 polling centres - an ambitious goal in a war-torn country where militants control much of the territory.

Sayad also expressed concern that a shortage of female staffers could hinder women's participation in the vote, particularly in conservative rural areas.

Parliamentary elections should have been held in 2015.

There are also special elections to fill vacancies in the state House created by the departures of former state representatives Matt Baker of Bradford County, Brandon Neuman of Washington County and Scott Petri of Bucks County.

Ian Power, Executive Director of SpunOut.ie, said: "A number of young people checking the register in the last few weeks have reported to us they have been removed since the last time they voted". "First years now get a student card and a voter registration form".

If you turn 18 between now and 25 May, you will be able to register before the deadline.

Despite global pressure on the Afghan government to hold elections this year, some question whether October will be too late.
