While the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has stated that the Continuous Voter Registration exercise will begin in Ekiti State on March 12 and run for a week, the electoral umpire has devised online means of verifying the registration of voters in line with its preparation for hitch-free elections.
As the electorate prepares ahead of the elections in Ekiti and Osun States on June 21 and August 21 respectively, INEC released information for status verification on its twitter handle, @inecnigeria.
For verification online, voters are advised to visit INEC’s website, www. Inecnigeria.org.
There is also an option of verifying over the phone. Voters are required to send their particulars to a designated number by SMS. Each voter will get a reply indicating whether he is duly registered or not.
The tweet containing the directive reads “EKITI OSUN VOTERS: Text “State, Surname,Last 5 digits of VIN” to 08171646879 to confirm your voter registration details. #CVR”
