Electoral Board


Explanation:
It can't be an electoral college since electoral colleges usually count delegate or electoral vote in elections.
In this case, it seems to be an Electoral Board in charge of some kind of voter regitration and district allocation that happens to be affiliated to the Civil Regitrar Office.
