Problems with Registration Data?
- For incorrect data, visit the exhibition center to effect the correction. If it's a minor correction, which does not involve the printing of a new ID card, that will be done at the exhibition center. A major correction will involve going to the District Office to authenticate biometrically before a new card would be produced.
- For omitted names, go to the exhibition center to apply for inclusion. This would require biometric authentication at the District Office before your name can be included.
- Deletion of deceased persons - Take along evidence, such as obituary notice with an attestation by a family head or from the Chief Imam, Death Certificates/Burial Permit or the Voters ID of deceased to the District Office. You will be required to fill an objection form which will then be sent to the District Registration Review Officer and The District Magistrate for review and subsequent deletion. Those who have applied for the deletion would be invited to meet with the DRRO.
The Commission will not later than six months from the end of the registration period compile a provisional register of voters for each polling division stating the name, age and sex of each person whose application for registration at that division was accepted.A copy of the provisional register of voters will be given to each registered political party in such form as the Commission may determine.
The Commission will cause the provisional register of voters of each polling division to be opened for public inspection and scrutiny at the registration centre for such period as the Commission will by notice in the Gazette specify.
