The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced that it will soon resume the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise in Edo and Ondo state ahead of the September and November off cycle governorship elections to enable eligible voters to participate in the polls.

This was disclosed in a statement by the electoral commission on Monday.

It said the resumption of the CVR will enable eligible citizens to get registered ahead of the governorship elections in the two states.

INEC added that the CVR will take place simultaneously from Monday, May 27, 2024 to Wednesday, between 9am to 3pm daily, including weekends.

The statement reads, “The Commission has decided to resume the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) in the two States to enable eligible citizens who are not registered voters to do so.

“Similarly, those who are registered voters also have the opportunity to transfer their registration from other States of the federation to Edo and Ondo States or from one location to another within the two States.

“Let me reiterate that the CVR is only open to new registrants and those who seek to transfer their registration.

“The CVR in Edo and Ondo States will take place simultaneously from Monday 27th May 2024 to Wednesday 5th June 2024 from 9.00am to 3.00pm daily including the weekend.

“Persons who are registered as voters should not attempt to register again as double or multiple registration is illegal.

“Lost or damaged voters’ cards will be replaced during the exercise but this does require fresh registration, it added.”
