Register for your PVC at the Center closest to your Home



Register for your PVC at the Center closest to your Home | BellaNaijaWe’ve been getting lots of questions concerning where to register to get your Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC).

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has offices in ALL local government areas of the federation. They are open Mondays to Fridays (excluding public holidays) from 9AM to 3PM.

You go to the registration centre with a document that can prove your identity and your age. Your National Identity Card is fine, permanent or temporary. There’s also your government issued Birth Certificate, or your Driver’s License, even your National Passport.

Remember to register at the centre nearest to your home, so it’s easy for you to vote during Election Day.

You can also transfer from one polling unit to another during this registration exercise.

INEC says:

Temporary Voters Card (TVCs) will be issued to registrants at the point of registration, while the PVCs of those registered in Quarter 1 (Q1) should be ready for collection in Quarter 3 (Q3), and Quarter 2 (Q2) will be ready in Quarter 4 (Q4) etc.

The last week of each quarter will be for display, hearing the Claims and Objections and housekeeping (Data backup, Consolidation, Reporting etc).

Your vote is your voice. It is the only way to ensure whoever you want representing you does represent you. From your councillors to the president.

It is normal for us to focus only on the big one: Governorship and Presidential elections. But the others are also very important.

It is the legislative who is saddled with making the laws. Your senators and your house of representatives members. They are the ones who represent your community. It is important you choose them wisely.

Register to get your Permanent Voters Card today. Please.

Share this message. Encourage others to get their PVCs if they haven’t already. Pair up with someone to get yours together. Just get it, and make other people get theirs too.
