When asked if PVC obtained in 2015 is still valid, the INEC official replied in the positive. “If you have registered, even if your PVC is defaced, it is still valid. The only thing is that because of the fact that it has been defaced, you want to obtain a new one that is good. “But if you have ever registered with INEC, your registration is still valid because your data is there. Your data has been uploaded into the BVAS,” he added. He also stated that Nigerian voters can check the status of their PVCs on INEC’s website. More on Politics
