Limited voter registration ends with calls for extension

The Electoral Commission on Sunday ended its limited voter registration exercise which commenced on June 17, 2019.

The exercise was to register eligible Ghanaians from the age of 18 and above to enable them to partake in the upcoming referendum for the election of MMDCEs and the district level elections.

However, the exercise did not go smoothly across all the centres as some network failures forced EC officials to switch from the online registration platform

to register applicants offline, a situation which left many people unable to register.

As a result, some of the prospective voters and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have called for an extension of the exercise.

Speaking to Citi News, the Public Relations Officer of the Electoral Commission, Slyvia Annor says measures have been put in place to ensure the situation is addressed.

“An operational instruction has been given from the HQ of the Electoral Commission by the commission to the effect that all those who will be in the queue should be captured so it doesn’t necessarily means it is ended. All those who were in the queue before 6 pm will still be captured so there is an inbuilt extension.”

Some centres have issued numbers to persons who were in the queue before the process ended will be registered in the ensuing days according to the new directive from the EC.
