The Electoral Commission (EC) has upgraded the list of specialised groups participating in the ongoing new voters’ registration exercise.
According to the Commission, the categories eligible to register at its district offices will now include applicants who are 50 years and above, health workers, and security personnel.
“Beginning Saturday 25th July, 2020, all applicants who are 50 years and above can visit any of the EC’s District Offices across the country to register for their Voters ID Card.”
The July 24 communique also indicated that “the list has also been extended to include health workers and all categories of security personnel, once they are able to show proof of identification.”
The Commission encouraged affected persons to take advantage of the opening.
It also explained that the EC’s district offices have registration officers assigned to assist with the process.
The statement also appealed to Ghanaians to “complement its efforts to raise awareness about this latest arrangement, for the success of the 2020 Voters Registration Exercise.”
