INEC to suspend online voter pre-registration by May 30

But talking on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 on the second quarterly assembly with Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) for 2022, Mahmood Yakubu, INEC chairman, stated the online pre-registration will finish in May.

He stated this could give time to those that registered online to full their registration bodily and would allow the fee to clear up the registration information.

As you are aware, the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise ends next month i.e. 30th June 2022. Both the online pre-registration as well as the physical registration at designated centres are taking place simultaneously,” he stated.

“However, online pre-registrants would require time to schedule appointments to full their registration bodily at designated facilities. For this purpose, the fee has determined to suspend the online registration within the subsequent three weeks, that’s, May 30, 2022.

“This will enable the online registrants to complete their registration physically at the designated centres before the exercise is suspended on June 30, 2022. This will enable the commission to clean up the registration data, print the permanent voters’ cards (PVCs) and compile the register ahead of the 2023 general election.”
