Members of Myanmar’s 88 Generation democracy movement have begun a stepped-up voter education push in the country’s Irrawaddy Delta region, reminding potential voters to participate in upcoming national elections and urging them to check local voter registration lists for errors RFA reported on 23 September.

The 88 Generation Peace and Open Society Group, formerly known as the 88 Generation Students, is campaigning especially in the region’s rural areas, where voter awareness is low, one member of the group told RFA’s Myanmar Service this week.

Local officials of the ruling and military-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) have not interfered so far with the campaign, democracy activist Aung Aung Kyaw said.
