The Government of Mali has declared Friday, July 26, 2013, as another one-off non-working public holiday to enable the population to go and get their electoral registration cards for the upcoming, July 28, first round of the presidential election.
Such "voter registration public holidays" are particular to Mali.
Four years ago (2009-04-21), the government of Mali declared Tuesday, April 21, 2009, as a one-off public holiday to enable the population to go and get their electoral registration cards for the April 26 communal elections.
Two years before that (2007-04-24), for the preceding presidential election, April 25, 2007, had been declared a one-off public holiday to enable people to also go and collect their voting cards.
