CVR: INEC deleting double registrants, PVCs ready November

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Monday said it has detected several double, multiple and ineligible registrants in the concluded Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise.

The commission, however, noted that most of the detected double registrants have been invalidated.

Consequently, he said Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) for all valid registrants would be available for collection by the end of October or early November as promised

“The ABIS for the period, January to July 31, 2022, is almost completed. Several double, multiple and ineligible registrants have also been detected and invalidated. These include entries that fail to meet the Commission’s business rules. The Commission takes this responsibility seriously because a credible register is at the heart of electoral integrity.
