The Electoral Commission (EC) has begun a 21-day limited voter registration exercise across the country. The process began at 7 am today and is expected to come to a close on May 28, 2024.

When the Upper East Regional Director for the Electoral Commission, William Obeng Adarkwa, spoke to Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show today, he stated that they decided on a limited voter registration because over the past few years, they have steadily added eligible Ghanaians to the voter roll.

The exercise is expected to happen at the district level. The EC has, however, made arrangements for hard-to-reach areas to be attended to by mobile teams.

“It is meant for new entrants. That is, people who have never registered with us. If your card is missing, this is not something for you.”

“The onus lies on registrants to make the trip to our district offices. Also, we have other mobile teams going to places that are difficult to reach. Some of them, when the rains start, residents would have to struggle to go to the district registration exercise, so the Commission has gone ahead to offer the opportunity. People will have multiple opportunities to register. For the tertiary institutions, there are teams to approach students to do the registration,” he explained.

Mr. Adarkwa said the documents needed for the registration are a passport and the Ghana card. Eligible registrants who have neither of the documents can go to the center with two guarantors.

Meanwhile, the EC has guaranteed the safety of all registrants.
