Display of preliminary register of voters ends August 21 says INEC

Written by on August 19, 2022

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced that the display of the fourth quarter preliminary register of voters (PVR) ongoing at the INEC Local Government offices nationwide will end on the 21st of August, 2022.

INEC revealed this in a statement issued via its official social media page on Thursday.

According to the commission, the exercise is coming on the heels of the conclusion of the nationwide Continuous Voter Registration (CVR), which formally closed on July 31, 2022.

INEC had said at the conclusion of the voter registration that the commission would undertake a clean-up of the register to remove multiple registrants using the Automated Biometric identification System (ABIS) and display the register for public scrutiny.

Meanwhile, display of the preliminary register of voters allows voters to check if they were duly registered to vote, which may warrant the need to contact the Electoral Officer to request for an amendment to a voter’s details as they appear in the PRV with emphasis that the exercise is free without any form of charges.
