Two missing Voter registers finally located

The provisional biometric voters redister for Afrancho and Hemang near Ankaase in the Kwabre West Constituency, which went missing have finally been located.

The registers were traced after seven days into the exhibition exercise, which is meant to clean up the register.

Mr Ampratwum Oppong, the Exhibition Officer at the Afrancho Methodist Centre, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that about 200 people had already checked their names.

There are a total of 613 registered voters at that centre.

Mr Joshua Ofori-Prempeh, the District Electoral Officer, confirmed to the GNA that the register for Hemang, where 515 people registered, had also been dispatched to the place.

The 10-day exhibition officially ended September 10, but he could not tell whether the exercise would be extended in the two Centres to make up for the lost days.

Mr Ofori-Prempeh said the decision rests entirely with the Electoral Commission (EC).

The 1,127 voters in the two centres, in effect would have had just three days to verify their details in the provisional register should the EC decide against any extension.
