Ghana: Biometric Voter Registration Takes Off

Biometric voter registration process begun in Ghana today ahead of the country's December’s general election.

The 40-day Biometric Voter Registration exercise, is a complete replacement of the existing voters register, thus it would render any previous voter registration invalid for purposes of voting in the upcoming elections.

The 40-day registration exercise will be held at the polling station levels with four polling stations coming together to form a cluster for the exercise. In all, 45 thousand EC officials will be deployed to the 7 thousand polling stations across the country.

About 12 million eligible voters are expected to be registered in the nationwide biometric registration exercise. 

Follow Ghanaelections and Africanelections on twitter for updates on this exercise.
