The Electoral Commission of Ghana has begun a nationwide exhibition of the voters register today Tuesday 10 September, 2019.

The eight-day exercise, which is meant to clean the register ahead of the upcoming referendum on the participation of political parties in district level elections, will be an opportunity for the about 17 million registered voters to authenticate their details in the register.

Speaking at a press briefing in Accra yesterday, the Deputy Chairman in charge of Corporate Services, Dr. Bossman Eric Asare, explained that the register which would be opened from 7:00am to 6:00 pm each day is to also provide avenues for eligible voters to raise objections to names of unqualified persons in the register.

"Basically, the exhibition exercise is to allow for prospective voters to verify if their details, such as names, sex and age, were properly captured during the registration exercise and make requests for amendments or insertions when necessary," he explained.

“A voter may be unqualified if he or she is not a Ghanaian, not at least 18 years of age at the time of registration, not a resident or ordinary resident in the locality,” he said.

Dr. Asare also urged the public with information on deceased persons to volunteer such information backed by the requisite documents such as death certificates and original identification cards of deceased persons to serve as proof of death.

Other activities to be undertaken at the polling stations which would be demarcated as exhibition centres comprise inclusion of omitted names from register, replacement of voters’ cards that are of poor quality or damaged cards, correction of wrong registration centre codes, as well as change of names.

The deputy chairman, however, advised that “voters requesting for change of name must have published the said change in the gazette and also provided documentary evidence to that effect at the exhibition centre.”

He added that persons without identification cards would be assisted to verify their details in the absence of a voter card while persons who want to verify details of other relative would be required to provide the cards of proxy persons.

Dr Asare also explained that the exhibition would create an opportunity for the inclusion of omitted names, removal of names of deceased voters from the register, correction of wrong registration centres, change of names and corrections to wrongly spelt names.
