11.	Everyone who registers to vote is required to dip their finger in indelible ink, signifying that they have registered and received their registration card, so they cannot register a second time. Here, people register to vote at Juba University on the first day of Voter Registration, 15 November 2010. The Referendum is an opportunity for the South Sudanese people to cast their vote for self-determination, and either stay united with the Republic of Sudan or secede and form their own state. After independence on July 9, 2011, South Sudan became the 54th African nation.
