After voting at polling units, results would be counted and recorded on physical result sheets, with BVAS capturing a snapshot. These results would then be authenticated at the collation center, where uploaded photographs would be made available on the result viewing portal. The process would proceed from ward to local government to state collation centers, culminating in the announcement of the final results and declaration of a winner.

Effanga assured strict adherence to election guidelines and emphasized the importance of engaging with voters for election success, pledging non-interference in the process.
