Serbian Prime Minister Ana Branbic said on Tuesday that the country’s electoral roll will be automatically updated within 24 hours when a death certificate is issued.

Brnabic wrote on her Twitter account that the automatic update was put in place on Tuesday. “We have linked the register of deaths with the electoral roll (the deceased are removed from the electoral roll within 24 hours). We are completing links with other registers and the electoral roll,” she tweeted.  

The Ministry of state administration and local government said earlier that the national electoral roll will be linked soon to the register of marriages which means that the electoral roll will be automatically updated with a change of name by marriage or divorce.
