The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released the methodology on display of voters’ register for claims and objections by Nigerians.

The National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee of INEC, Festus Okoye, said this yesterday after the weekly management meeting of the commission.

He said the commission deliberated on the forthcoming display of the entire national register of voters for claims and objections by citizens as required by law and approved the methodology for the exercise.

He further said that as earlier announced by the commission, the entire preliminary register containing 93,522,272 registrants would be published and that the exercise would last for two weeks, from November 12 to 25, 2022.

He explained that, “The physical copies of the register will be displayed in all the 8,809 Registration Areas (wards) and 774 Local Government Areas on polling unit basis nationwide.

“For the first time, the soft copy of the entire register will also be published on the commission’s website. The register will give the name, picture, date of birth and Voter Identification Number (VIN) of each registered voter.

“However, for data protection and security reasons, critical information such as biometric details, residential addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses of voters will not be made public on both the physical and soft copies.”
