INEC announced that it would suspend CVR on August 17 until after the 2019 general elections and later announced that the Nigerian public can register for PVC on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays until the deadline.
We have just some days to the deadline and now we have helped you compelled some steps which will help you collect your PVC to have a voice that matters as a Nigerian to vote for your preferred candidates.
According to the official timetable released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the presidential and National Assembly elections will take place on February 16, 2019, while the elections for state governors, state house of assembly representatives, and council representatives will take place on March 2, 2019.
If you don’t already have one, here are the simple steps to acquiring a PVC before the registration period ends:
1. As long as you’re a Nigerian who has attained the required voting age of 18, all you have to do is show up at the nearest INEC LGA office with a valid means of identification like a birth certificate, a driver’s licence, national passport, or any other document that can prove identity, age and nationality.
2. After the registration process is complete, INEC will issue you a Temporary Voter’s Card (TVC) as a placeholder for when the permanent one will be ready.
3. When your PVC is ready, you can use the TVC to claim it at your INEC LGA office after your name has been verified on the distribution list.
You can verify your PVC status by checking if your name has been added to the voters’ register by checking the “Voter Register Verification Platform” on the INEC website.
