Oyo Electoral Commission To Accept Driver’s License, National ID Card, Others For Voting

Ahead of the May 22 local government election, the Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC) has said it will accept four other documents aside from Permanent Voters’ Card (PVC) that will be tenable by voters to cast their ballot.

As captured on the flier released by the commission, voters who don’t have Permanent Voters Cards can use either National ID card, International Passport, Driver’s License, or Temporary Voters Card.

The Chairman, Mr Isiaka Olagunju, had hinted about the tenable documents for voting in the forthcoming elections weeks ago.

He said what was imperative was for a person’s name on any of the identification documents to match the name on the Voters Register, which he said will he displayed across the 33 local government election areas from next week.

Olagunju added that he had instructed security agencies that those whose names are not on the voters register and present at the polling centres to be arrested.
