Pennsylvania residents who want to vote in next month's primary have until 11:59 Monday, April 16th to register.

In early April, the IEC announced that parliamentary and provincial council elections, originally slated for July, would be pushed back to October 20. People can also register in person at the county elections office. The country will also hold regional elections in tandem in hundreds of districts across Afghanistan - some of which are outside Kabul's control.

SpunOut.ie executive director Ian Power 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".

"We are trying very hard to increase the confidence of the public, to increase the legitimacy of the elections", Sayad said.

A friendly community service reminder: Register to vote.

The USI are running voter registration drives on campuses all across Ireland in partnership with local Student Unions to register as many young people as possible before May 8th.

But the Taliban, which is expected to launch its traditional spring offensive in the coming weeks, has not responded to Ghani's proposal.
