INEC: The Number Of People Who Have Registered To Vote Online Has Surpassed Two Million.

Over two million people registered in less than two months after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) launched the online Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) campaign, indicating that Nigerians will vote in large numbers in the upcoming general election.

INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, stated this in a press statement distributed to journalists in Abuja on Monday, August 23, 2021.

In just eight weeks after the online registration opened, 2,215,832 additional voters were registered, according to the statement.

"The number of new participants has already topped two million since the inauguration of the online registration portal on June 28, 2021," Okoye said in part. The number of new registrations as of 7 a.m. on Monday, August 23, 2021, is 2,215,832.

Similarly, the Commission began in-person or physical registration, as well as the completion of online pre-registration, four weeks ago at our State and Local Government Area offices around the country. The total number of completed registrations is 430,363.

The Commission's website and social media platforms have been updated to include a detailed breakdown of the online and completed registrations by state/FCT, age, gender, occupation, and disability.

The Commission once again urges all eligible citizens who have not yet registered to do so.

The Commission would like to emphasize that those who have already registered as voters do not need to do so again.

Those who wish to transfer to another location to vote in future elections or who have concerns about their Permanent Voters' Cards (PVCs) may request resolution online or in person. "
