How to print temporary voters card

The temporary voter’s card is issued to voters temporarily before they receive the permanent voter’s card (PVC). It serves as a provisional identification document until the PVC is issued. However, individuals with the temporary voter’s card are typically not allowed to vote during elections, as the PVC is the required form of identification.

The PVC contains vital information such as biometrics and other unique characteristics specific to each individual. If you are unable to locate your temporary voter’s card, you can check the online database for your details.
