The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana is satisfied with today’s piloting of the new voters’ registration exercise being conducted nationwide.
The exercise which is being held in all 16 regional capitals in the country is to identify problems associated with the new system for the technical team to address them.
In a statement, the EC said: “all issues identified will be forwarded to the Commission at the national level for the necessary rectifications to be made before the commencement of the exercise at the end of this month.”
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM evening news, the acting Director of Public Affairs of the Commission, Sylvia Annor said ‘so far so good’

The EC statement further indicated that:
“All Ghanaian citizens of 18 years and above and of sound mind are expected to register where they reside when the exercise begins; with either a Ghanaian passport or Ghana card as proof of identification or have two guarantors who have already registered as voters so they can register.”
“Safety measures will be put in place at all registration centres throughout the country to protect applicants, who are mandated to wear nose masks to the registration centres,” it stated.
