The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced the dates and procedures for the ongoing voter registration.
If you recall, the project started from June 28, 2021 and will continue until July 11, 2022.
A statement from the commission’s media and voter education department said the work would be carried out in the first three months and two months of this year.
Next year the work will be done in the second, third and fourth months of the year.
The schedule shows that this year, from June 28 to September 21, voter registration will take place.
From September 28 to 30, the names of those who have registered will be posted for everyone to check to make sure their published information is correct or correct.
The next task is to continue the voter registration process which will start on October 4, and will continue to do so until December 20, 2021.
In 2022, INEC will continue to register voters on January 3, and continue until March 22.
It will then pause to verify the names of those who have registered so that they can check to make sure their published information is correct or if there are corrections.
This will be done between March 26 and April 1, 2022.
Voter registration will continue between April 11 and June 30.
Then, as in the past, the names of those who have registered will be rooted out to ensure their validity and to make corrections where appropriate.
In addition, INEC has announced the type of people who can go to the registration office.
According to her, every Nigerian under the age of 18 is eligible to register to vote if he or she has never registered before.
Likewise anyone who has ever registered but has had a problem with his registration in previous elections, which he wants to fix now, can also come.
The commission also said that if a registered registrant wanted to be transferred to another polling station, he or she could also go to the polling station.
Anyone who registers but whose card is lost or damaged can also apply for a new voter registration card.
Anyone who wants to have a previously registered information, such as a name or date of birth, can also go to the registry office for correction, the commission said.
Finally, the commission has announced that the registration process in Anambra State will be postponed to August 2021 due to the state governorship election to be held on November 6, 2021.
