The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has urged eligible Nigerians to take advantage of the commission’s online open portal for the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise.

INEC said since its formation, “this is one of the Commission’s innovations to enhance voter experience by making the registration exercise faster, easier, and less crowded than before.

The Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu in a message urged Nigerians from 18 years and above to take advantage of the services offered by the Commission through the portal for the exercise which will be carried out for about 74 days – 2 months,14 days and there will be registration for new voter’s card, change and update of the defaced permanent voter’s card among others.

Message reads in full: “I am pleased to introduce the Commission’s online portal for the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR).

“Since the resumption of voter registration on a continuous basis in 2017, the Commission has been looking at ways to make voter registration easier, more accessible, and user-friendly not only to the multitude of prospective registrants, but also to registered voters who may wish to transfer their registration or have had their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) missing or defaced.

“Given the lingering COVID-19 situation, the new registration solution will help decongest registration centers, reduce delays, and allow prospective registrants to schedule appointments and monitor their applications from the comfort of their homes.

“The portal allows a two-step registration process in which first, prospective registrants login to pre-register by providing their basic biodata and some biometrics and second to complete the registration by physically presenting themselves at a designated registration center of their choice.

“This considerably eases the process as a substantial part of the exercise would have been completed online before physical contact with registration officials. I urge all eligible Nigerians to take advantage of the services offered by the Commission through this portal,” it ended.
