Voters’ Registration Exercise Enters Phase Two Today
LISTEN JUL 6, 2020

The Electoral Commission’s (EC) ongoing mass voters’ registration exercise across the country enter's phase two today.

This phase is expected to run till Saturday, July 11, 2020, at each of the five registration centres across 6,788 clusters nationwide.

The mass registration exercise is being conducted in five phases.

Registration officers will spend six days at a particular centre during each phase.

The registration exercise will take place at all the 33,367 polling stations.

As phase two commences, the EC said 267 public education vans have been deployed nationwide to create more awareness on the exercise.

The commission will use three days for a mopping-up exercise which will be done at the end of the main Registration Exercise.

One of the main points of concern during phase one of the registration exercise was the lack of social distancing at the registration centres.

There have also been minor challenges with logistics and the guarantor system which has also received some scrutiny after the passing of the Public Election (Amendment) regulation, 2020 (C.I. 126) to amend C.I 91.

The amendment will make the Ghana Card and the Ghana passports the only valid identification documents for registering to vote.
