As part of the continuous registration exercise of Voters Registration (CVR), almost 1 million Nigerians are currently registered for their permanent voter card (PVC).
A total of 931,768 people have been registered since 26 July 2021 by the latest statistics published by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
On 28 June, the Commission launched an online website to pre-register prospective new constituents before complete registration.
Since then, 2,953,094 people have been registered on the online platform but, according to the latest figures published on Monday, 13 September, only 342,752 of them complete registration.

The exercise is also open for those who want to transfer voting location, correct data issues, and replace lost or damaged PVC, issues for which 1,272,655 applications have been submitted.
There are currently about 84 million registered voters in Nigeria and INEC is targeting the registration of at least 20 million new ones.
