INEC begins online registration for voters


INEC lists Soludo for Anambra elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission has commenced the proposed online continuous voter registration exercise to enable intending voters to register before they complete the process at a designated centre.

As earlier projected by the INEC National Commissioner, Mr Festus Okoye at a press conference two weeks ago, new voters, as of Monday, can pre-register on the INEC portal while those who have registered in the past can access the platform to review their voter registration status.

The portal also has some features that can enable voters to update personal information or transfer voter registration to another polling unit.

Channels TV reported that registered voters can also request for replacement of damaged or defaced Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVC) on the portal.

Meanwhile, reports say that new voters are only required to fill the forms on the portal with their biodata and required documents, after which they are expected to visit an INEC state or local government office.
