The voter register exhibition exercise has witnessed low patronage so far, with officers calling on the Electoral Commission (EC) to collaborate with other state agencies to intensify public education on the exercise.
The officers said the National Commission for Civic Education and the Information Services Department, for instance, were needed to maximize public awareness of the important exercise that formed a part of the national democratic process.
They explained that the measure would help to whip up public interest in the ongoing exercise, which ends tomorrow, November 7, 2023.
The officers further stated that although the exercise took off smoothly last Friday with the provision of the necessary materials, patronage was not encouraging.
Another EC official has explained that there are no consequences or something, but it is advisable for the public to come and check just in case. On D-day, the election day, if you have challenges with your ID card, maybe your name, age, sex, or something, you will not be allowed to vote. That will be the consequence. So it is better you find a time, and then you come and check. If there are any mistakes or something, you should let the EC official know.
