PVC 2019 Elections: Getting Your PVC Before Elections
As the 2019 Presidential/Governorship elections approaches, it is required that any person over the age of 18, must have a permanent Voter’s Card.
In order to ensure full participation in the oncoming elections, you must be over the age 18.
However, a person over the age of 18, possesses an entitlement for his or her voice to be heard in a democracy state like Nigeria.
Consequently, without the permanent voter’s card in your possession, you secure no part in the election of good and credible leaders into governmental seats.
According to the official timetable released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the presidential and National Assembly elections will take place on February 16, 2019,.
While the elections for state governors, state house of assembly representatives, and council representatives will take place on March 2, 2019.
Fastest Ways To Getting Your PVC Before The Elections
If you don’t already have one, here are the fastest ways to acquiring a PVC, before the registration period ends:
1. As long as you’re a Nigerian, who has attained the required voting age of 18, all you have to do is show up at the nearest INEC LGA office, with a valid means of identification like a birth certificate, a driver’s licence, national passport, or any other document that can prove identity, age and nationality.
The exercise runs between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.
2. After the registration process is complete, INEC will issue you a Temporary Voter’s Card (TVC), as a placeholder for when the permanent one will be ready.
3. When your PVC is ready, you can use the TVC to claim it at your INEC LGA office after your name has been verified on the distribution list.
Moreover, you can verify your PVC status by checking if your name has been added to the voters’ register by checking the “Voter Register Verification Platform” on the INEC official website.
The Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise will be suspended in December 2018, 60 days before the commencement of the election.
In July 2018, INEC announced that it would suspend CVR on August 17 until after the 2019 general elections and later announced that the Nigerian public can register for PVC on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays until the deadline.
Finally, in an announcement made on August 14, INEC further extended CVR until August 31, from Monday to Sunday, but excluding public holidays.
After seeing all that you need do in getting your PVC, why wait? Hurry now!!! Go get yours cos it’s your voice.
