The commission announced on social media that the registration period has been extended by two days, with a new expiration date of Wednesday, May 29, 2024.

The initial plan was for the limited voter registration exercise to conclude on May 27, 2024, however it began on May 7, 2024.

In its statement, the commission clarified that the purpose of the extension was to compensate for the technological difficulties encountered during the exercise’s first two days.

“The Electoral Commission is pleased to inform the public that the ongoing Voters’ Registration Exercise has been extended for two additional days.

“The exercise will now end on Wednesday, the 29th of May 2024. This arrangement has been put in place to make up for the network challenges experienced during the first two days of the Registration Exercise,” parts of the statement read.

It added, “The Commission aims to ensure that all eligible voters who wish to register are afforded the opportunity to do so. We urge all eligible citizens who are yet to register to visit the Commission’s office in the district where they reside to register to vote.”

Following requests for an extension of registration from a number of stakeholders, including some political parties, the EC made this announcement.
