Let’s start with a few common questions about PVC.
What is PVC?
PVC stands for Permanent Voters Card.
What is PVC used for?
The Permanent Voters Card enables registered voters to exercise their civic right to vote in the General Elections.
What information is contained in PVC?
The PVC stores information such as; biometric data, i.e physical attributes, thumbprint, etc. It protects the information stored in the card. The information on the PVC is electronically programmed and can only be read/assessed electronically with a card reader. Voter’s verification will be done with Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS), another name for Biometric Verification.
What do I need to have to collect my Permanent Voter’s Card?
To collect your PVC, you need to present your Temporary Voter’s Card to the INEC officials. If you are registering for the first time, you’ll be given a form to fill.
My PVC is lost/damaged, what do I do?
You apply in person to the Electoral Officer of your Local Government Area/Area Council for a replacement of the lost/damaged voter’s card. This must be done not later than 30 days before the election. You will be required to pay a processing fee.
Where do I collect my PVC?
To collect your PVC, go to INEC office.
Where am I supposed to vote?
You are to vote at your designated Polling Unit.
I want to change my Polling Unit, what do I do?
Please take the following steps:
•Apply to INEC more than 30 days before election. Write an application for transfer to the Resident Electoral Officer of your Local Government Area/ Area Council (the present location you would like to be transferred to). Your original Voter’s Card must be attached to the application if it is Interstate Transfer;

When will PVC registration close?
June 30, 2022
It took me two days to register for my Voter’s Card.
The first day, I waited until 2pm!
I was unable to register the first day because of bad network.
The second day, I went around 8am because I wasn’t ready to hear any stories. Afterwards, I got my Pre-registration slip.
The patience I exhibited while getting my Voter’s Card 😅 shows how ready I am for 2023 General Election.
I hope you are ready too?
Here are 7 reasons why you need a PVC:
1. To End Insecurity
2. To End Bad Leadership
3. For Better Education
4. To Improve the Economy
5. For Job Availability
6. Access to Proper Health Care
7. For Peace and Development
According to Nathaniel Bassey,
PVC stands for Pray, Vote and Count
•PRAY: Nehemiah prayed before embarking in the building project (Nehemiah 4:6-9 KJV). So do we need to pray as we build a new Nigeria.
•VOTE: Then we vote.
Vote Values. Vote Principles. Vote Vision. Vote Purpose.
•COUNT: Then we ensure and insist that our votes are counted and that they indeed COUNT.
We’ve been preparing for this, even before now. It’s time to ACT.
Happy PVC Day! 💃🏽
According to Nathaniel Bassey,
Today is PVC Day in Nigeria.
Why PVC Day?
To create an online viral awareness, buzz on the importance of registering to vote in the upcoming election and help with useful information on how to go about it.
This would involve making the “PVC DAY” banner your profile picture on all your social media platforms if possible FROM 12 NOON WAT TODAY, sharing this post and hashtag, generating and encouraging conversations about 2023 election.
“This is a make or mar moment for Nigeria.
As we stand on the cusp of a great change.
Depending on our choices, good or bad”.
In my previous blog post “Nigeria, which way?”, I pointed out that it’s necessary to educate and enlighten Nigerians on why they should get their PVC and vote.
I’m so happy that I’ve done that ☺🙏🏾✨.
PVC is your only visa to vote.
No PVC! No Vote!
Have you registered for your PVC? Or are you about to get your PVC?
How was the process of obtaining your PVC?
You’re welcome to share.
Please stay safe.
I’m sending everyone lots of love and lights.
