The gubernatorial election will be held on Saturday, March 18, 2023, with almost all of Nigeria’s 36 states, with the exception of others, voting for their preferred candidates to lead and act as representatives for them at the federal level of governance.
Here are three important things to remember before going to your polling station.
DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY TYPE OF BRIBERY OR CORRUPTION.
The primary goal of every democratic election is to ensure that all elections conducted by the electoral commission are free and fair. So, when you arrive at the polling station, don’t listen to miscreants and lawless citizens who try to engage you in vote buying; remember that any form of vote buying or bribery undermines your preferred candidate’s ability to win the election. So consider these factors before departing your homes to vote.
RECOGNIZE YOUR CANDIDATES AND THE ISSUES.
Understanding the candidates you can vote for is one of the most crucial things to accomplish before the election. Also, you should be aware of the candidates’ positions on political matters, particularly those that are important to you.
Get to know your polling place.
Once you’ve registered to vote, it’s time to familiarize yourself with your polling location. Normally, you will have a polling station near your home, but there may be times when you are concerned about the location of your polling station. So, make sure you are completely familiar with the precise location of the polling station before Election Day to avoid any messy delays.
