The Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended voter registration in Edo and Ondo States.
The exercise was initially slated to end on June 5 in the two states.
The commission will conduct governorship elections in Edo and Ondo States on September 21 and November 16 respectively.
The INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Voter Information and Education Committee, Sam Olumekun, said in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja the exercise has been extended to June 9 following appeals by stakeholders.
The statement read: “More machines will also be deployed to areas identified to have peculiar needs such as difficult terrain or communal issues,” the statement partly said.
