On 10 October 2017, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC), launched a Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) blitz across the country amid concerns there is still low turn out in some parts of the country.

 The blitz is a follow up to the launch of the BVR by President Mugabe on the 18th of September 2017.

The registration process will last for 72 days and it will be held in four phases with each kit spending 16 days at the established centre.

The first phase begins on the 10th of this month until the 25th, the second phase begins on the 29th up to the 13th of November, third phase from the 16th of November to the 1st of December and the fourth and last phase on the 4th to the 19th of December 2017.

Heal Zimbabwe through its resident human rights monitors in all the country's 10 provinces is monitoring the environment during the voter registration exercise.

This is being done with the objective of monitoring the environment and report on any cases of human rights violations during the process as well as making referrals where possible for redress. In 2016, HZT established an early warning and early response system for easy detection and response to cases of human rights violations.
