Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) Exercise

April 19, 2022

Dear Nigerians!

We are in the last and final phase of the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise which will end on June 30th, 2022, in all the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) State and Local Government Offices across Nigeria.

The display of the register for Claims and Objections will also commence from May 4th to July 11th, 2022, in all INEC local government offices. Take advantage of the opportunity to register now.

According to the data released by INEC- as of 14th January 2022, 2,523,458 people have completed their registration. 1,126,359 (44.6%) of the registration were invalid as a result of multiple registration, failure of Automated Biometric Identification System, and incomplete data.

If you are in this category, note that the previous registrations are still valid.

Guys! We need to take this process seriously so that we can all have a Permanent Voters Card (PVC) ready for #NigeriaDecides2023. Have you lost your card or want to transfer your voting location? You don’t need to begin a fresh registration – apply with your specific request to INEC via cvr.inecnigeria.org.

Dear citizens, there is some good news! INEC has printed 1,854,859 PVCs which are now available for collection. If you registered between June 2021 and January 2022, visit the INEC office where you registered to collect your PVC now. Of the printed PVCs, 1, 390, 519 accounts for all valid new registration from Q1 and Q2, while 464,340 PVCs are verified applicants for card transfer or card replacement.  According to the INEC, the Q3 and ongoing Q4 PVCs will be ready for collection before the 2023 general elections. Remember you cannot collect PVC by proxy, the direct owner of the card must make collection.
