The Electoral Commission (EC) says although the voters’ register exhibition has ended on Friday, September 20th, correction of details and replacement of identification cards will continue.

The Wa Municipal Director of EC, Jackson Annoh said the national exercise had been smooth so far but encouraged voters to visit the Commission’s offices countrywide to correct their names after the exercise. 

Meanwhile, the exhibition exercise in the Wa Municipality recorded low turn-out before the close of day on Friday with many centres remaining virtually deserted, a visit by the GNA to some areas in the Municipality revealed.

At the Wa Circuit Court polling station, out of 500 registered voters, only 87 people had checked their personal details.

Several issues about missing names in the register as well as the misspelling of names were recorded at the centre.

At the Wa Technical Institute polling station, 48 people out of 577 registered voters had checked their details at the time the GNA visited the centre on Thursday, 19th September 2019.

It was also established that one person’s name was found in the multiple registration list, which he objected to while two other persons sought correction of their names.

The EC started the voters’ register exhibition on September 10, 2019, to enable prospective voters to cross-check their details and to eliminate names of dead people from the register.
