Registration of voters will bein on June 28 – INEC

The continuous voter registration (CVR) exercise ahead of the 2023 elections will start on June 28, 2021. This announcement was made by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

INEC Chairman, identified as Mahmood Yakubu who disclosed this in Abuja on Thursday April 1, said the commission will provide more details on the CVR exercise, particularly the innovations that will ensure a safe and stress-free experience for registrants. 

Yakubu said; 

“Effective from Monday 28th June 2021, the CVR exercise will commence nationwide and carried out continuously for over a year until the third quarter of 2022. 

“However, emphasis will initially be on Anambra State where more centres will be established in view of the governorship election already scheduled for Saturday, 6th November 2021.

“In order to complete preparations for the governorship election, the CVR exercise in the state will be temporarily suspended in August 2021. This will enable the commission to clean up the data for the state and print the PVCs (permanent voter cards) for registrants.

“As time goes on, the commission will provide more details on the CVR exercise, particularly the innovations that will ensure a safe and stress-free experience for registrants. In doing so, we will fully consult stakeholders. In fact, the first in the series of these consultations will take place after the Easter break.”
