The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has commenced its second quarter Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) in Enugu State.
The INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Enugu State, Dr. EmekaOnonamadu, disclosed this yesterday while addressing newsmen on the 2nd Quarter of the CVR within Enugu State.
Ononamadu said that the exercise started on Monday, October 4, in keeping with the CVR timetable published by the commission before the commencement of the CVR.
He said that the exercise, which is expected to run till December 2021, would have the online pre-registration component continued along with the physical registration.
“It is imperative to bring to the knowledge of prospective registrants and stakeholders that INEC has opened its doors to continue with the registration of eligible voters in Enugu State,” he said.
He noted that stakeholders are encouraged to use this opportunity to ensure that all eligible persons who have turned 18 years and have not registered before should go and register in each of our offices in the 17 local governments in the state and INEC state office in Independence Layout, Enugu.
“They are also expected to apply for replacement of misplaced or lost Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), transfer from one polling booth to another either within the state, LGA or ward and also correct wrong data in their previous registration and collect their permanent voters’ card which they were unable to collect during the registration,” he said.
While noting that the first quarter of the CVR saw a low participation and a closing population surge, he urged residents in the state to register as voters, which is their civic responsibility.
The registration starts by 8a.m. each working day and ends by 3p.m.
