No fewer than 6.5 million registered voters are expected to elect their local government chairmen and councilors for a fresh four-year term across 13,323 polling units in 20 LGAs and 37 LCDAs in Lagos State today.
AllNews Nigeria reports that 15 political parties were registered for the election according to the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC).
Voting is expected to begin at 8 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. in all the polling units, while those in the queue by 3 p.m. will be attended to.
There are 6.5 million registered voters for the election and the electoral commission said COVID-19 protocols will be strictly adhered to during the election.
LASIEC also said it may transmit the results of the election electronically on its “robust and user-friendly” website, despite still experiencing technical challenges less than 24 hours to voting.
“Our website should really reflect the result,” said Ayotunde Philips, the LASIEC boss. “We are having a bit of problem now with uploading but, hopefully, it is going to be reflecting on our website.”
