Voters registration to start on August 4

The Electoral Commission has set Monday, August 4, as the new date to begin the Revision of the Voters Register. The exercise is expected to run until Wednesday, 13th August.
The EC registration exercise will allow Ghanaians who turned 18 after the 2012 general elections and adults who could not register during the previous registration exercises to register.
Amadu Sulley, Deputy Chairman of Operations at The Electoral Commission has said that only a Ghanaian Passport, a Driver’s License, a National Identification Card or an old voter ID card will be accepted as means of identification.
“The Commission wishes to stress that by the Court’s ruling it will not accept the National Health Insurance Card as one of the identification documents, ” Mr Sulley said.
“Applicants are reminded that those who qualify to be registered but do not have any of the required identification documents may still have their registration guaranteed by two registered voters.”
The registration will take place at the designated centres in every electoral area. The exercise will start at 7:00am and close at 6:00pm each day.
