he Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday announced that it would begin online voter registration through its registration portal on June 28.
INEC National Commissioner in charge of information and voter education Festus Okoye made the announcement during a press briefing in Abuja.
“The INEC Voter Registration Portal will be deployed to enable people register online and thereafter go to their respective states or local government offices of the commission to capture their biometrics and facials,” he said.
Okoye stated that citizens who would rather transfer their registration to a different location could do that through the online portal.
“Those that have prior issues of accreditation and with damaged or defaced PVCs can also use the online portal to rectify the challenge,” the commissioner explained.
He disclosed that INEC Chairman Mahmood Yakubu will announce the commencement of physical registration after consultations with critical stakeholders.
