The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will convert 924 voting points to polling units in Ondo state, to meet up with present realities and encourage turnout of voters, ahead of the 2023 General Election.

The State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Rufus Akeju stated this at a stakeholders meeting for the expansion of Voters access to polling units in Akure, the state capital.

He said it is necessary to chart a new course for better electoral participation and ensure citizens exercise their rights to vote and make electoral choices.

Akeju added that creation of additional polling units will resolve complaints of being disenfranchised, because polling units were far from voters’ settlement.

Various stakeholders present welcome the development for creation of new polling units.

With this development, Ondo state will have 3,933 polling units for its 1.82 million voting population.
