LAE is set to roll out its District Population Verification Project in the next five months.
This will involve the collection of crucial date for the fingerprint voting expected to be followed in 2017.
Lae is the first district to carry out the registration project, which is aimed at collecting personal information about every person living in the city.
With Lae expecting massive growth in the city, the data from the registration will be used to plan for adequate government services.
It is hoped this will also alleviate the law and order problems the city has been experiencing over the years.
Many illegal settlements will also be removed, during the project roll-out.
Equipment, required for use in the project, has already arrived from America, and are awaiting customs clearance, before the project commences.
Member for Lae, Loujaya Kouza, says the registration is vital, as the information gathered will be then used to ensure adequate services are effectively delivered to the people.
The project will be carried out in all twenty-three wards in the city.
