INEC Voters Card Online Registration Portal 2024

In this post, I will show you how you can register for your permanent voter’s card (PVC) online in 2021.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) continuous voters card registration begins on Monday, 28 June 2021.

The Continuous Voter’s Card (CVR) registration is on the INEC registration online portal. The registration is preliminary to the physical registration process.

It means that you will first of all register online. You will then go to the polling unit to complete the registration process.

The online registration process makes the process of getting your PVC easy.

You will visit the INEC office in your LGA with your online printout for biometric capture.

You will get a temporary voters card after your biometric capture. The permanent Voter’s card will be available at a later date.

Let me know in the comment box below if you encounter any problem or have any question.

  1. Good morning sir ?

  2. Been trying to register since last week but the portal has been giving a error message that: Error!
    This service has been suspended for now. Please check back later

    What could be the problem?

    • Hello Temmy,

      Sorry about your experience with the INEC portal.

      The challenge you are experiencing is due to network issues.

      I recommend you visit the closest INEC registration centre close to you to register for your PVC.

    • You do not need to upload a supporting document during the registration progress except that you did a change of name.
