The nationwide Continuous Voter Registration, (CVR) being conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), would soon commence.
INEC, spoke about resumption of the exercise which is due to start on Monday, June 28, during its Abuja roadshow.
The Commission’s Deputy Director, Voter Education Division, Mrs Mary Nkem, said the road show was to sensitise and to mobilise eligible voters in the FCT for the exercise.
“It is also to let FCT residents know those who are being targeted in the exercise. Those who have turned 18 after the last registration exercise, or those who are more than 18 years but have never registered.
“This exercise is also for those who have issues with their accreditation during the past elections. Those who have issues with their Permanent Voter Cards or their biometric details,” she explained.
INEC, has planned that the exercise would take place from 9am to 3pm from Monday to Friday, excluding weekends.
According to her, It will involve two processes, that is, online pre-registration and physical registration. So, people can sit in the comfort of their homes and login details for registration. Then go to any of our local government or state office to capture their biometrics and photographs; or you appear physically at any designated register,” she said.
The Commission would also issue guidelines for the collection of PVCs.
