3. Old Registrants seeking transfer, collection of cards, correction of personal information etc.
The Commission calls on eligible registrants to take advantage of this opportunity to register in order to participate in the November 6, 2021 governorship election.
Please note that in line with the provisions of the Electoral Act, the CVR exercise in Anambra State will be suspended on 6th September 2021.

This continuous voters registration is in view to capture voters who are eligible to participate in the forthcoming Governorship Election in the state which will take place on the November 6th 2021, this will capture people who became eligible to vote from the last time continuous voters registration took place which took place in 2018 and those who were eligible as at them but couldn’t register due to unforseen circumstances.
We hope Anambrarians make use of this opportunity to equip themselves for participation in the upcoming governorship election in November
