The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has announced plans to commence Continuous Voter Registration, CVR exercise June 28 this year, Fresh Angle International can authoritatively report.

A statement signed by the Chairman of INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, noted that the exercise will commence nationwide and carried out continuously for over a year, until the third quarter of 2022.

The statement dated today, Thursday April 1, listed the categories of people to participate in the exercise to include; all registered voters, who wish to transfer their voting locations from the present one to another, all registered voters, who have lost their PVCs or whose PVCs have been defaced or damaged and registered voters, who wish to correct their pieces of information such as misspelling of names and date of birth.

The Commission, disclosed that it is migrating from Direct Data Capture Machine, DDCM, which is based on a laptop and a series of peripherals connected to it, alongside its usage of large power packs to power the laptops in the field, to the INEC Voter Enrolment Device, INED, which is based on Android tablets.

“The procurement of the new devices, the modification of the registration software by our in-house engineers to make it compatible with the Android Operation System, as well as integrating these with the online registration portal required little more time. For instance, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our partners abroad, who manufacture the IVED hardware are not operating at full capacity and the pandemic has also made the supply chain and delivery much slower”, Prof. Yakubu explained.
