As we are approaching the 2015 general elections in Nigeria, there has been a lot of noise about every eligible voter collecting his/her Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC), and for those that are yet to register to do so.

If you have collected your own PVC, you can take the extra step to confirm that your PVC is real and that your data was properly captured by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). INEC has provided a portal where you can check this in just a few steps.

I’ve outlined the steps to achieve this below.

  1. Go to website
  2. Click the “Check your status” link, which would redirect you to
  3. Fill the displayed form by selecting your state of registration, entering your last name and your full Voter’s Identification Number (VIN). You can also enter the last 5 digits of your VIN instead of the full VIN.govote form
  4. If you entered the wrong details or if (for whatever reason) your data does not exist in INEC’s database, then you’ll see something like the screenshot below. govote_invalid_details
  5. However, if all is well, you’ll see a screen showing your details, which include your name, full VIN, gender occupation. etc. govote_success

Once you are able to confirm your details, then you are sure that your PVC is good-to-go for voting.
