SAN FRANCISCO, August 24, (THEWILL) – The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will commence the Continuous Voter Registration in Kogi and Bayelsa on Sept. 2 through Sept. 7, ahead of the governorship elections in both states.

According to the commission's daily bulletin issued on Monday in Abuja, the registration exercise will take place at the local government areas in the states from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

It is open to persons who are 18 years old and had not previously registered to vote and persons who had previously registered before the last general elections but their names are not in the register.

The commission, therefore, urged prospective voters in both states to turn out and take advantage of the exercise to register in order to vote in the forthcoming elections.
