The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced today that the commission has extended the November 6 voting exercise for the next Anambra governor till Sunday, November 7.
The extension of the voting till Sunday 7th November came just few hours after the commission extended the voting for few hours in locations with accreditation and voting issues due to the failing of BVAS.
Announcing this to newsmen, the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr NwachukwuOrji, said this is to enable those who could not cast their votes today, Saturday, November 6, due to the malfunctioning of the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System (BIVAS) machine, to do so.
Orji said the closing of voting had been shifted from 2.30 pm to 4. pm after and that the exercise will continue on Sunday in units where voting could not hold. He said the machines suffered software hitches, adding that the commission’s engineers were working to rectify the problem.
