Following the confusion and social media speculations that INEC may have secretly changed the pattern of fingers allowed for thumb printing on the ballot papers for the 2019 elections, the commission has said that electorate can use any finger to cast their votes in the forthcoming general elections.
The commission made the clarification on its official twitter page @inecnigeria on Wednesday saying the ballot paper is not finger sensitive, but advised the electorate not to allow the indelible ink on their fingers cross into another box.
“A voter can use any finger to vote but should ensure that his or her mark is clear and placed inside the box of the political party of his or her choice and does not stray into another box,’’ it said.
