How To Register For Your Voters Card Online
The Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) exercise which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) conducts periodically before the general elections commenced on Monday 28th of June, 2021. The exercise is aimed to capture young Nigerians who turned 18 years old since after the last election and also those who have reached the connotationally allowed age but have never registered.
The exercise will last for one year but we encourage our members and everyone else to not foot-drag but register on time.
At the commencement of the CVR exercise, INEC said it targets to capture 20 million new registrants on the voters register. If INEC achieves this target, the total number of eligible voters in Nigeria will cross the 100 million mark.
In order to accomplish the set out goal, the commission launched an online portal to make the registration seamless and without hassles. This means that Nigerians who wish to register as a voter do not necessarily need to queue up or spend several hours at the INEC’s registration centers as they easily register on the INEC online portal (www.cvr.inec.gov.ng).
Below, are steps of how you can register as a voter from the comfort of your home or office with the aid of your mobile device or computer.
1. Prospective registrants should visit www.cvr.inec.gov.ng or www.cvr.inecnigeria.org on your phone or computer.
2. You will then be required to create an account with a valid email address to begin the registration.
3. A link will be sent to your email during registration to verify your email address. This is to ensure that your email address is valid and correct. Click on the verify link to continue with your registration.
4. Fill the online form with the relevant information required of you and avoid mistakes. All questions marked with red asterisks * are compulsory.
5. Select a convenient date and time you will visit the INEC office for your biometric and data capture.
6. Then submit your application. An application slip with your ID number and barcode will appear on your screen.
7. Print the application slip and keep it until the day you are to visit the INEC office for your biometric data capture.
8. A registration slip will be given to you after the exercise. Keep it safe because you will use it to collect your permanent voter’s card.
But if you would rather visit the INEC registration centre or you wish to recommend to other people who are not internet savvy but also wish to register, you can checkout the list of REGISTRATION CENTERS HERE and find the one closest you or the person.
