EC To Exhibit Newly Compiled Voters’ Register

The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced September 18th to 25th as the period slated for the exhibition of the newly compiled voters’ register.

Making the announcement, Director of Elections for the Commission, Dr. Serebour Quarcoo also urged Ghanaians who registered to partake in the exhibition exercise.

“This is a new compilation so there is the need for everybody to go and check his or her particulars”.

“All should go to the centre, get a request form and show your voters’ identification card, he added.

Mr Quarcoo further explained that individuals who identify errors in their details will be given the opportunity to make changes or alter them.

He also added that a platform will be made available for Ghanaians to object ‘suspicious’ names in the voters’ register.

The compilation of new voters register by the Electoral Commission commenced on June 30, 2020, and ended on August 6, 2020, after countless protests from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and some Civil Society Organisation.

Although the EC had projected registering 15 million eligible voters, the Chairperson for the Commission, Jean Mensa revealed that some 16,663,669 people were registered onto the new electoral roll.
