Ghana:Huge turnout on last day of limited voter registration

The last day of the limited voters’ registration in the New Juaben Municipality saw many people rushing to the centres to get their names on the electoral roll.

A total of 68 eligible voters had registered as of 1612 hours, when the Ghana News Agency (GNA) got to the Highways Registration Centre, and many others were seen standing in a queue, anxiously waiting to go through the process.

Within a space of four days, 253 people had been registered there.

At the Effiduase Community Centre, 51 people had successfully completed the process when GNA visited at 1632 hours on the last final day. Others were waiting for their turn.

Here a total of 319 new names had been added to the voters roll in four days.

The qualification of two applicants had been challenged.
