The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) is requesting the details of its members who wish to take advantage of the special voting granted by the Electoral Commission (EC).

Ahead of the December 7 General Elections, Journalists will be busy working 24/7 to bring the Ghanaian populace up to speed with all the news they need to hear.

In the line of duty, it will be difficult for some to even move to the designated polling stations to cast their votes.

As is done in every election year, the EC grants special privileges to some persons including people in the media and the security agencies.

With months away from Election Day, the GJA is requesting from Journalists who wish to take advantage of the special voting to submit their details for inclusion.

“The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) requests all journalists whose duties may not allow them to vote on Election Day at the polling stations they registered but wish to take advantage of the Special or Early Voting to send the following details to the Ghana International Press Centre by the 10th of October, 2020”, a press release by the GJA signed by President Affail Monney has said.

Journalists are to send their names, Voter ID Number, Code on ID Card, as well as Polling Station to the Press Center before the close of the aforementioned date.

Full press release from the GJA Below:
