The Electoral Commission (EC) has introduced a short message service (SMS) platform to enable registered voters access their registration details. The short code, 1422, will be activated on Friday, September 18, to Friday, September 25, 2020. To access registration details, voters would have to text their voter ID card number to the short code.
The exhibition of the voters register would commence on Friday, September 18, to Friday, September 25. The eight-day exercise would give registered voters the opportunity to authenticate their personal information. The exercise would also help the EC rid the register of unqualified persons ahead of the December 7 polls.
The EC provisionally registered 16,963,306 people at the end of the biometric voters registration exercise which ended on August 9, this year.
