INEC commences voter registration in Kogi, Bayelsa States

 

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), will start a Continuous Voter Registration exercise on Wednesday in Kogi and Bayelsa States.

The Commission, on Tuesday, announced that the exercise will take place for six days in the States, beginning from September 2.

INEC Said the essence of the Continuous Voter Registration was for three groups of eligible electorates to register and be able to vote in the elections.

These group of people are those who were eligible but did not register before the 2015 general elections, those who are eligible but whose names are not on the voters’ register and those who have attained the age of 18 years since the last voter registration exercise.

The Commission had asked voters to go to their local government areas where it is expected that the exercise would commence everyday during the scheduled six days of the exercise from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm.

The election in Kogi State has been scheduled for Saturday, November 21 while that of Bayelsa State will hold on Saturday, December 5, 2015.
