Ghana: Electoral body to exhibit voter roll in September

The Electoral Commission (EC) has said it is set to begin exhibiting the 2016 register of voters in September after registering eligible voters in the just-ended continuous voter registration exercise.

The EC has described the two-day continuous registration exercise as successful. It offered first-time voters the opportunity to get captured onto the poll roll.

Deputy Head of Communications at the EC Alhassan Yusif Ayuba, speaking to Class News, said the commission can now go ahead to exhibit the register after completing both limited and continuous registration exercises as well as deleting names of persons who registered with National Health Insurance Scheme cards in compliance with an order from the Supreme Court.

The exhibition is expected to commence in early September.

“Come early September, we will exhibit the register for all persons who registered under the continuous registration and also persons whose names we deleted because of the Supreme Court order. …We will exhibit those registers at the various polling stations where they registered for them to go back and check the correctness of their details,” Mr Ayuba stated.
