PVCs: Delta govt declares Aug 15 as public holiday—SSG

The Delta Government on Wednesday declared Aug. 15 as public holiday, to enable eligible voters to obtain their Permanent voters’ cards (PVCs) from the  officials of  Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

This is contained in a statement by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mr Ovuozouries Macaulay, in Asaba.

According to the statement, INEC will  begin the distribution of the PVCs  in all the registration points across the state on Friday.

“The holiday will provide the opportunity for persons in the state who registered during the 2011 voter  registration to exchange their temporary voter’s card with the PVC”.

The statement also advised  persons who had attained 18 years since the last exercise in 2011 to register during  the  next Continuous Voters’ Registration (CVRs) in the state.

“Those who have not been registered are to register at the  designated polling units to enable them to exercise their franchise in the coming elections,” the statement said.
