2023 Elections: How to Check Live Results from Polling Units on INEC Portal

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has consistently assured Nigerians that the 2023 general elections will be transparent, free, fair and credible.

Ahead of the polls, one of the measures the electoral body has put in place to ensure the process is transparent is the introduction of the Election Result Viewing Portal (IReV Portal).

Results of the elections in the various polling units will be uploaded on the portal for everyone to see.

This will allow Nigerians to keep tabs on the results even before the final collation by INEC in Abuja.

Though the portal has been used in previous off-cycle governorship elections, it is the first time it will be deployed for a presidential election in Nigeria.
