According to Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, 8 million Permanent Voters' Cards are awaiting collection. 

Director in-charge of Voter Education, Publicity, Gender and Civil Society Liaison, Mr Oluwole Osaze Uzi, while speaking said, “You know we do not distribute PVCs. They are collected. The onus is on those collecting. There are quite a few cases where the cards have not been printed but that is not the main issue. The issue is the collection. We have over eight million cards lying down in our offices, uncollected, and we have distributed them to our distribution points. It is now an issue of the collection. ‘’So, we are putting in place measures to assist those that are willing to collect their cards. We are simplifying the process, ensuring maximum publicity so that people will know the importance because, automatically, they are disenfranchising themselves when they do not pick up their cards. We are trying to persuade people. Some are not interested.
Ozi added that, ‘’Sometimes, we even try to call them. In Oyo State, I know that they even had to call people on phone but those that they were able to reach said they were not interested in the cards. Some said that they had relocated. So, we are making efforts. In some states, they have sent text messages too for collection.”

Did you register for a voters' card? Have you collected your voters' card? If you haven't, you may be disenfranchising yourself of the right to elect your leaders.
Imagine what could be achieved with the numbers if people go out to vote.

If you're yet to get your card because you relocated, that's no problem. Simply follow the six steps provided below to ensure you vote in your new location:

1. Apply to the Resident Electoral Commissioner through the Electoral Officer of your current Local Government of residence indicating your current address.

2. Collect ECTF form (application for transfer of a registered voter) from Registration Area Officer IV (RAO IV). 

3. REC approves application. 

4. Application forwarded to HOD (ICT/VR) to effect transfer on server. 

5. Collect your PVC next quarter.

6. Distribution Officer authenticates PVC using Smart Card Reader, SCR.
