INEC to display preliminary voters’ register nationwide next week

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced that it will display the preliminary voters’ register at registration centres next week.

An update at the commission’s headquarters said this was to enable the public scrutinise the register before the printing of Permanent Voters’ Cards, PVCs. The document will be on display for seven days.

The notice said the preliminary register “will contain the names of those who registered newly or transferred their votes to new areas” since the Continuous Voter Registration, CVR, exercise, began on April 27 at local council offices, nationwide.
