Meanwhile, the commission has said it planned to decongest polling units that are overcrowded to allow for a stress-free voting exercise during the forthcoming elections.
It said this was in the exercise of its powers under Section 40(2) of the Electoral Act, 2022, saying it has allotted voters from overcrowded polling units to less congested polling units within the same location to promote a more pleasant and stress-free voting experience on election day.
The commission enjoined eligible voters to visit the INEC voter verification system on: www.cvr.inecnigeria.org/vvs or voters.inecnigeria.org to check their name on the register of voters and confirm the location of their polling unit where they will vote on election day.
The commission promised that the list of registered voters in the 176,846 polling units nationwide would be on display at each polling unit before the day of the election.
INEC hence encouraged eligible voters to visit their polling units to check for their names on the register and confirm the location of their polling unit where they will vote.
