Nigerians to get permanent voters card soon (Business Day)
“As you know, we did biometric data registration; before the end of this year, we will start issuing the permanent voter’s card, and these permanent voter’s cards that we are going to issue are chip-based, just like many of our own bank cards. So, they carry all the information on a microchip which is embedded in the card of the card,” he said.
“What we believe we can achieve at the minimum by 2015, is that we can achieve 100 percent authentication at the polling units.
Biometric voter registration without biometric voter authentication at the polling place is, at best, a half step toward an optimal biometric voting system.
