Steps on how to collect your PVC

The Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) is a smart identity card with voter’s information such as bio-data, biometric and facial image. The card is issued by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to citizens 18 years and above, making them eligible to vote in any election in Nigeria. The PVC is the only acceptable proof of identification that enables eligible Nigerians to cast their votes during elections in Nigeria.

How to collect your PVC

1 – Go to the polling unit where you registered for your PVC

2 – A distribution officer will check and confirm if you are in the register of registered voters in the polling unit from a system

3 – If your name is found on the distribution register of voters, the distribution officer shall search through the PVC cards for his/her PVC

4 – The distribution officer will then request you to thumbprint and sign the PVC collection section of the distribution register of voters

5 – The distribution officer then retrieves the Temporary Voter Card (TVC) from you and hands you your PVC

6 – In the event that you do not have a TVC (but your name is found on the register of voters), you will be made to sign an attestation form and affix a passport photograph.
