How You Can Confirm Your Polling Unit Location via SMS: Simple Steps To Take
Nigerians can now confirm the location of their polling units through SMS, ahead of the forthcoming general election.
In a statement on Friday, Mahmood Yakubu, chairperson of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), said the commission has introduced technological innovations to make voting more credible and result management more transparent.
He said the commission noticed that during the mock accreditation exercise, some voters turned up at the wrong polling units.
Yakubu said other voters may be in the same situation, adding that a reoccurrence must be avoided on election day.
Simple way to confirm your polling unit location
According to INEC, to check the location of your polling unit, text the name of your state, last name, and the last six digits of your voter identification number (VIN) to 09062830860 or 09062830861.
