In 2015, Nigerians did something that had never been done in the history of our young democracy, vote out an incumbent President. The desire for ‘Change’ was widespread and when the time came, the people exercised their right to vote. The trajectory many expected Nigeria to take has been very different from the reality and 2019 promises to be another eventful election year. The election cycle has begun and while many will in disappointing fashion fail to exercise their right to vote, the interest in mapping out the processes and making it as easy as possible for first timers and return voters is as high as ever. The desire to ensure the masses head out led Olayinka Omole and Yomi Eluwande to invent govote, a website that guarantees the first step to voting is straightforward.
With the website, you can check the nearest Permanent Voters Registration Centre to you and head on out to get your PVCs as we all get ready to head to the ballot approximately one year from now.
