The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced that it will start Continuous Voter Registration in Kogi and Bayelsa States on September 2 through September 7, ahead of the governorship elections in both states.
Information gathered from the commission’s daily bulletin issued on Monday in Abuja, suggests that the exercise will take place at the local government areas in the states from 8a.m. to 4p.m. daily.
According to INEC, the five-day exercise would afford opportunity for three groups of eligible persons to be registered.
The commission further stated that the groups were those who were eligible but did not register before the 2015 general election and who were registered but their names were not in the voters’ register.
“The other is those who have attained the age of 18 since the last registration exercise,’’ it added.
