Before you go to your polling unit to cast your vote in the upcoming elections in Nigeria, it is highly recommended you make use of the online INEC voters card verification portal to check the status of your pvc. The INEC online portal will also let you check your voters identification number (VIN).
Checking your voter’s status is very important because without a valid voters card, you will not be accredited and allowed to vote during an election in Nigeria. The card identifies you as a registered voter. Thus your name can be checked easily by the Presiding Officer or his Assistant during the accreditation exercise.
How To Use INEC Voters Registration Status Checker
Enter http://voterreg.inecnigeria.org in your web browser and you will see the INEC form.
- Select your state of residence (where you registered)
- Enter your surname
- Enter your VIN or date of birth
- Click “Search”
If valid, your details including pvc vin, polling unit will be displayed.
NB : If you have lost the temporary voters card (i.e the paper print version) you can use your date of birth for the verification.
