6. Select a date for biometric capturing.

After filling the form with accurate information, proceed to select a convenient date and time for your biometric capturing. This capturing will be done at an INEC centre. Make sure you choose a date and time convenient for you regardless of your working hours.

It is recommended that you choose a centre that is nearest to you. Find a list of all registration area centres across the country here.

Also, search for the polling unit closest to you here.

UPDATE: There is a part of the process where you have to upload your photograph, but instead of an upload button, there’s a “start camera” button which didn’t work for me, and that’s where I’m stuck.
