Continuous Voter Registration Begins Today Nationwide

Nationwide CVR commences today, Thursday, April 27, 2017 in each of the 774 Local Government Areas of the federation.

The exercise shall take place on weekdays (Monday-Friday) from 9.00am to 3.00pm excluding public holidays.

The exercise is intended to: Enable citizens who have turned 18 years of age since the last registration as well as those who did not register during the last exercise to register as voters.

Allow those seeking transfer of their registration from one state to another or within a State from polling unit to another to do so.
Distribute uncollected Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to those who could not collect them before or since the last General Elections.

 Enable citizens who have the Temporary Voter Cards (TVCs) but whose names are on the register to collect their PVCs.

The Registration Centres shall be the Local Government offices of the Commission or such other suitable locations as will be made public by the State Offices of INEC.

The Commission advises those who are already registered not to do so again as it is an offence to register more than once.
