2023: INEC Introduces Portal For Voters E-registration

In preparation for the 2023 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has stated that the Continuous Voter Education next week, has introduced an online portal for registration.

According to reports,  INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, disclosed this while briefing the press on Monday in Abuja.

Yakubu stated that, “In the next one week, Monday 28th June 2021, the Commission will resume the Continuous Voter Registration nationwide. In doing so, the Commission is introducing a portal to enable eligible Nigerians to commence registration as voters online before completing the exercise physically at designated centres nationwide”.

He added that, “This is the first time a major exercise of this nature is handled partially online, consistent with the Commission’s commitment to continue to deepen the use of technology in the electoral process in Nigeria.”

He also made it known that, “Just like the expansion of voter access to Polling Units, the Commission appeals to the media for support so that this novel idea will also be successful.”

Yakubu disclosed that, ” The exercise would last for at least one year. The success of the exercise depends, to a considerable extent, on citizens’ awareness through voter education. There will be new registrants, requests for intra-state and inter-state transfers as well as the replacement of voters’ cards as provided by law.”
