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. The exercise runs between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.
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.
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.
The Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise will be suspended in December 2018, 60 days before the commencement of the election.
