How to register for your PVC online>>>The Independent National Electoral Commission, or INEC, introduced an online Continuous Voter Registration system last year to let Nigerians register online and maintain their registration offline as they get ready for the 2019 elections.
The CVR website’s mission, according to INEC coordinator Professor Mahmood Yakubu, is to “improve voter experience by making the registration procedure quicker, easier, and less congested than previously.”
According to him, the portal “allows a two-step registration process in which prospective registrants log in to pre-register by providing their basic bio-data and some biometrics and then to complete the registration by physically presenting themselves at a designated registration center of their choice.”
The deadline for online registration, which ends on May 30, 2022, has also been announced by INEC. Nigerians are urged to submit their applications and make appointments for biometric capture before that date.
According to the CVR website, the ongoing Voter Registration (CVR) process will end on June 30, 2022.
In consideration of the 2023 General Elections, the Commission will be able to “clean up the registration data, produce the Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs), and construct the register” thanks to this, according to the statement.
This is what you should do if you want to start the online PVC procedure before the deadline of May 30 and finish the exercise physically before the deadline of June 30.
