MY PERSONAL VOTER'S CARD REGISTRATION EXPERIENCE:
Let me hold your hand as you go get your #PVC
How do you do that?
1.Determine that you want to get it done.Then determine again and again and again.
2.Quit procrastinating.Do not assume that you have all the time in the world to get it done.Do it NOW!
3.Make enquiries as regards the nearest registration point to you.
4.Do not be discouraged by certain issues eg centres publicised online that are not open,mammoth crowds,someone else's nasty experience etc.There will always be one somewhere around for you.
5.Get an accountability partner or more.Mine were @iamsteveharris for venting purposes and @nosaalways @ekanemisaac for information-sharing,prodding and encouraging as you do the same for them/others as regards the entire process.Thankfully,we all have our cards now.
6.If at first you don't succeed,try and try and try again.
7.At the actual registration point-wear comfy clothes/shoes,bring your own entertainment(a book,music etc),hail or patronize the vendors around selling drinks,'okpa',snacks etc,make new friends,co-operate with the INEC staff and volunteers etc
8.Thank and appreciate the volunteers who are not INEC staff but who are giving their time and energy to make this a seamless process for us all.There are really good and selfless people out there!
9.Do not shout at the INEC Staff or Volunteers.Don't take out your personal or national frustrations on them.
10.After the data capture,you will be given a temporary card which indicates that you will have to get the main one later.
Is this super-easy?Nope!
Is it worth it?Most definitely!
You can do it!💪
I hope this helps someone out there!
