What to Do When You Relocate, Jega Advises Nigerian Voters

Attahiru-Jega1The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Attahiru Jega has said that all registered voters must vote at the point where they have registered.

Mr Jega disclosed this in response to a question tweeted-in by a lady who was watching the live programme on Channels Television from Abuja.

However, when a voter relocates, Mr Jega said “the electoral act clearly specifies what to do. You can change or transfer your registration status. All she needs to do in her case is to apply to the Resident Electoral Commissioner in the FCT giving all the necessary information why she has moved, what were the details of her previous registration, what was her polling unit and where is she now located.
