The Upper East Regional Director of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, William Obeng Adarkwah, has made an impassioned appeal to citizens to actively participate in the ongoing voter exhibition exercise, which is set to conclude on Tuesday, 7 November 2023.
According to him, it is crucial for individuals not to assume that their names and details have been accurately captured; therefore, all eligible voters should verify their information.
The voter exhibition exercise is an essential step in the electoral process, allowing registered voters to confirm their details, including names, addresses, and photographs, and to make corrections if necessary. It is a vital mechanism to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the voter register ahead of the 2024 elections.
Speaking on A1 Radio, the director emphasised the importance of this exercise in maintaining the transparency and fairness of the electoral system.
He urged citizens not to take their participation lightly, as it is their responsibility to confirm the accuracy of their registration details.
He stated, “It is crucial that every eligible voter takes this exercise seriously. Do not assume that your details are correctly captured; instead, take the time to check and make any necessary corrections.”
The Regional Director also expressed satisfaction with the overall conduct of the voter exhibition exercise in various districts throughout the Upper East Region.
He indicated that the process had been running smoothly, with no significant disturbances or issues reported.
“…we have not heard of any disturbances, and I must say that it has been smooth. You know, with exercises like this, people often do not take them seriously, but I encourage people to participate seriously in it.”
Mr. Adarkwah further commended the commitment of electoral officers and their dedication to ensuring a successful exercise.
