The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will commence Continuous Voter Registration in Kogi and Bayelsa States on September 2 through September 7, ahead of the governorship elections in both states.
According to the commission’s daily bulletin issued on Monday in Abuja, the exercise will take place at the local government areas in the states from 8a.m. to 4p.m. daily.
It stated that the five-day exercise would afford opportunity for three groups of eligible persons to be registered.
The groups, the commission said, 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.
