ISLAMABAD -- The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) extended voter registration for Pakistan's general elections to April 30, Geo News reported.

The original deadline was Tuesday (April 24). The ECP granted the extension in response to "requests received from different segments of society", according to Geo News.

The general elections are scheduled for the end of July. The government is set to step down on May 31, after which a caretaker government will take over.

The ECP displayed lists of 104 million eligible voters at 14,000 centres beginning March 26, asking Pakistanis to check their information and that of their family members, Dawn reported.

Voters can download forms for corrections from the ECP website or obtain them from the display centres and offices of district election commissions.
