The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has registered 70,000 people in Kwara since the commencement of the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise in April 2017.
Mr Paul Atser, INEC Administrative Secretary in the state, made this known during a meeting with members of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) in Ilorin on Monday.
He said that the Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) of the 70,000 registered prospective voters would soon be sent to the state for distribution.
He added that of the 242,000 unclaimed PVCs in the state, 4,000 had been collected by their owners.
Atser further added that card owners will have to personally visit INEC collection centres as there will be no collection by proxy.
