The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced the resumption of continuous voter registration (CVR) in Edo and Ondo States ahead of governorship elections in the two States.

INEC announced the development via the Commission’s official X handle on Monday.

“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,” INEC posted.

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

Recall that INEC has scheduled the governorship election in Edo for Saturday, 21st September and that of Ondo for Saturday, November 16 respectively.
