Anambra Polls: Why INEC Asked Women Not To Apply Make-Up On Election Day

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has urged women not to apply make up on their faces on the day of the Anambra State Gubernatorial election which is slated to take place on the 6th of November, 2021 across the State.

The reason INEC warn about this is because the identity of a credible female voter may be distorted when make up is applied on the face. This will make the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System machine unable to capture the persons face. Meaning that the person will not be verified and cannot vote.

The Bimodal Voter Accreditation System is a machine that will be used for the accreditation of eligible voters during the election. It works by capturing the faces and fingerprints of voters.

The machine is expected to combine two modes of verification which is the fingerprint and face biometrics for each voter's verification.

It could be recalled that early this year, INEC had hinted that it has adopted technologies that will improve the conduct of elections in Nigeria. This machine is one of those it adopted.
