The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced September 18 to 25 as the period slated for the exhibition of the newly compiled voters’ register.

In a statement issued by the Commission, the exercise is said to be in accordance with 23(1) of the C.I.91 of the Public Elections Regulations 2016.

Giving further details, the Commission said the exhibition will be conducted at all polling stations throughout the country from 7 am to 6 pm.

The week-long exercise will among other things give individuals who identify errors in their details an opportunity to make changes or alter them.

Speaking in an earlier interview with JoyNews, the Director of Elections for the Commission, Dr Serebour Quarcoo urged Ghanaians who registered to partake in the exhibition exercise.

He also added that a platform will be made available for Ghanaians to object ‘suspicious’ names in the voters’ register.

Although the EC had projected registering 15 million eligible voters, the Chairperson for the Commission, Jean Mensa revealed that some 16,663,669 people were registered onto the new electoral roll.

The compilation of the new voters register concerned on June 30, 2020, and ended on August 6, 2020, after countless protests from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and some Civil Society Organisations.
