Extension Of The Provisional Voters Register Exhibition Exercise

Extension Of The Provisional Voters Register Exhibition Exercise

In accordance with Regulation 23(1) of C191 of the Public Elections (Registration of Voters) Regulations 2016, the Electoral Commission had to initiate the exhibition of the Provisional Voters Register for inspection by Voters at all Polling Stations throughout the country from Friday the 18th to Friday the 25th of September, 2020.

The week-long exercise was to run from 7:00am to 6:00pm each day, including Saturday and Sunday.

All registered voters were encouraged to visit their Polling Stations with their voter’s ID cards to verify their details.

The Exhibition Exercise will give each registered voter the opportunity to do the following:

  • Check their name, particulars and other details so as to effect corrections where necessary.
  • Object to the inclusion of unqualified names in the register on grounds such as the registration of minors and non-Ghanaians.
  • Replace unclear photographs
  • Verify Polling Station details ahead of Election 2020.

Voters who registered at the District Offices of the Commission are to visit the Polling Station assigned to them during the Registration Exercise to verify their details.

The Commission  has also introduced an SMS Platform to enable registered Voters access their registration details.

To access this Platform, Voters should simply text their Voter ID Card Number to the Short Code 1422 to obtain their registration details.

NEW DEVELOPMENT

In a new development, the Electoral Commission of Ghana has extended the deadline for this exercise by 2 days.

In a press statement issued by the Commission and copied to Newsvibz, the commission wrote;

“As part of efforts to serve the interest of its Stakeholders and promote greater participation and inclusion, the Electoral Commission has extended the Voters Exhibition Exercise from Friday 25th September to Sunday 27th September, 2020.

The Commission is of the view that this extension will allow even more Stakeholders to check and verify their voter registration details. This is instrumental for the achievement of a clean and credible Voters Register.

The last day of the Exhibition Exercise will therefore be Sunday 27th September, 2020. We encourage the Public to take advantage of the extension by making time to verify their registration details”.

The Public is informed that changes to a person’s details can be requested at the Exhibition centre and effected at the District Office.

The Commission assures the Public that it will enforce stringent safety protocols at all Polling Stations throughout the country.

These include the compulsory wearing of face masks, the use of hand sanitizers and the observance of the social distancing protocols,

All registered voters and stakeholders are encouraged to participate in the Exhibition Exercise to make it a success.
