MATTERS ARISING • Loss of TVCs to flood, etc • Legal procedures to be followed • Transfers • Legal procedures to be followed • Persons turned 18 or did not register in 2011 • Avail themselves of the opportunity of the CVR • Four PUs illegally relocated to a forest during the 2011 Election WARD PU DELIM Total Valid Invalid % Invalid ANAMBRA OYI NTEJE I NZIKO VILLAGE SQUARE I 04/21/05/013 497 293 204 41.0 ANAMBRA OYI NTEJE I NZIKO VILLAGE SQUARE II 04/21/05/014 523 337 186 35.6 ANAMBRA OYI NTEJE I UKO VILLAGE SQUARE I 04/21/05/015 421 279 142 33.7 ANAMBRA OYI NTEJE I UKO VILLAGE SQUARE II 04/21/05/016 501 293 208 41.5 STATE LGA • The Commission is going to verify their status and communicate decision soon
  18. 18. ACTIVITIES ON THE REGISTER OF VOTERS • Voter Verification Exercise – 16th to 18th August 2013 • All voters to go to their respective PUs to verify their registration status • Continuous Voter Registration Exercise – 19th to 25th August 2013 • Registration shall take place at the RA Centres; • For the 53 PUs without data, registration shall take place at the PUs; • Those whose names did not appear in the registers to come for fresh data capture; • Those turned 18 or did not register in 2011 to come for data capture.
  19. 19. WAY FORWARD • The Commission is eliminating the use of Addendum Registers; • CVR is proposed to handle cases of missing names, especially in places with zero voters; • Need to enlighten the people to come out and verify the status of their registration, before the CVR commences; three days to CVR; • People without their names in the register should come for recapture during the CVR exercise; • Transfer cases should follow the legal provisions – apply to the REC through the EO of the new LGA.
  20. 20. CONCLUSION • No doubt, a credible register is the bedrock for the conduct of a successful election; • As usual, the Commission is willing and ready to conduct a free, fair and credible Governorship Election in Anambra State; • It needs the cooperation of Stakeholders to work with the people at the grassroots in ensuring that all activities lined up for the optimization of the register of voters in the State are given the necessary attention.
