Date for receiving voting cards extended to December 1

government - November 28, 2021

The High National Elections Commission (HNEC) has extended the date for receiving the voter's card to Wednesday, December 1, after it was supposed to end today, Sunday.

The commission explained in a statement Saturday that the step comes in light of the increasing turnout of those wishing to claim their cards.

According to the HNEC, the number of those who received their cards exceeded two million voters.

The statement urged all citizens who registered on the voters' list and did not receive their cards 'to seize the opportunity and come forward through which they can decide the future of their country.'
