The people power coordinators have urged their fans to Go and verify their voting power VERIFICATION EXERCISE HAS STARTED
You are hereby informed that the voter verification exercise has started today Monday 21 October 2019. It is going to be conducted at village level during village council meetings that will be carried out for a period of eight (8) days until Monday, October 28, 2019. The purposes of the verification exercise are:
a) To allow persons who may have applied for registration by NIRA and desire to vote, ascertain whether their names have been included on the National Voters Register.
b) To provide an opportunity for public scrutiny of the voters’ roll in each village in the district in order to identify particulars of persons who are ineligible (i.e. those who neither reside nor originate from the respective parish) from appearing on the register (i,e. the Dead (D), those persons who may have Left the Area (LA) and Other reasons).
c) To raise awareness about and encourage participation in cleaning of the National Voters’ Register at village level.
d) To identify all Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) in the respective villages for purposes of compiling the registers for PWDs in preparation for the update exercise.
NB: For those who may not be able to physically verify their details or who may have relocated from areas where you were registered, you are allowed to delegate someone who can verify your particulars. But it is important that you do whatever it checks to verify your particulars in person.
