The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Delta registered 600,000 new prospective voters during the just-concluded Continuous Voters Registration (CVR).
INEC’s Administrative Secretary in the state, Mrs Rose Orianrian-Anthony, disclosed this to newsmen in Asaba on Tuesday.
Orianrian-Anthony said that the commission achieved a lot by giving the electorate who had not registered before the opportunity to register to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
She said that the new registrants included those who recently relocated to the state from other parts of the country.
Orianrian-Anthony said that those whose data were wrongly captured were corrected.
The Administrative Secretary also said that the commission in the state distributed 36,647 old PVCs as at August 25 while 137,719 PVCs were yet to be collected.
