STATES TO GET 10 ADDITIONAL REGISTRATION CENTRES



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has approved 10 additional Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) centres for each of the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The Creation of these registration centres bring to total, 672 additional centres across the federation since the commencement of the exercise in April this year.
The decision by the Commission to increase the Registration centres was born out of the desire to ensure every eligible citizen gets registered in the on-going CVR exercise ahead of the 2019 general elections.
It would be recalled that INEC, on the 27th of April, 2017 commenced the CVR exercise as envisaged in the Electoral Act (2010 as amended). The exercise is currently in its third quarter.
