How to transfer voter registration
Apply to INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner of the state where you now live, through your Electoral Officer (EO). The application should contain your current address, phone number and a copy of your utility bill.
Attach a photocopy of your Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) and submit at the nearest registration centre. Your application must be submitted at least 60 days to the election.
Once INEC is satisfied that you actually relocated, they’ll approve your transfer request and assign you to the polling unit closest to you.
A new PVC will then be issued for your collection at the registration area where your application was submitted.
Note: When the PVCs are ready, INEC will make a public announcement to that effect. You can only collect your new PVC in person and you must return the old one.
