It’s no more news that Permanent Voters Card (PVC) registration has closed, and it’s not likely that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will re-open the registration process once again. Though, there are millions of eligible voters yet to register for their own PVC.
However, the purpose of this post is not about the closing of INEC‘s PVC registration at various centers across the country, but how to check if your Permanent Voters Card Is Ready for collection.
The 2019 general election is coming nearer and it will be very important to know the status of your PVC because, without a valid voters card, you will not be accredited and allowed to vote during the election process next year. The card identifies you as a registered voter, and your name can be checked easily by the Presiding Officer or his Assistant during the accreditation exercise.
So for registered candidates who are yet to obtain your PVC, simply follow the below steps to check the availability status.
Once again, if you have registered for PVC before the INEC’s closing date weeks ago, kindly follow the below steps to check the status of your Permanent Voters Card.
How to Check Your Voters Registration Status
- Go to http://voterreg.inecnigeria.org
- Fill the form to check your status which includes your Place of residence, Surname, VIN (last – 7 digit of your VIN)
- If you can’t recall your VIN, there is an option to use the day, month, and year of registration to verify one’s status.
- If your status is VALID, go and pick up your Permanent Voters Card (PVC) at your Local Government Secretariat before December 18th, 2018.
