INEC extends voter registration deadline in Edo, Ondo — Politics

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday said it has extended the period of the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration(CVR) exercise in Edo and Ondo states.

This was contained in a press statement made available to newsmen in Benin, the Edo capital, on Tuesday.
The statement read in part, “The Commission approved the extension of the exercise from Thursday 6 to Sunday 9, June 2024 to enable more eligible persons to register following appeals by stakeholders.
“The Commission took the decision after a meeting on Tuesday, 4th June 2024. Among other matters, the meeting reviewed the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) in Edo and Ondo states scheduled to end tomorrow Wednesday, 5th June.
“Similarly, the duration of the exercise is extended from 9.00 am — 5.00 pm daily.”
Continuing, the statement said,” Furthermore, the number of centres has been increased beyond the 397 wards and the two states’ offices in Benin City and Akure to include all the 36 Local Government offices of the Commission in the two states.
“More machines will also be deployed to areas identified to have peculiar needs such as difficult terrain or communal issues. Like the Ward registration centres, detailed information on the names and location addresses of the LGA offices have also been uploaded to the Commission’s website and social media platforms for the guidance of registrants in the two states.”
The Commission appealed to eligible voters to seize the opportunity of the extension to register, transfer or correct personal information on their PVCs as provided by law noting that, “No further extension will be granted by the Commission.”
