Speaking to the youth leader in Zawse, Edward Ayaaba said even the 14 names left in the voter's register are those who registered at senior high schools centres and not at their registration centre.
Edward Ayaaba said they have asked the EC officials to go home and come back with all the missing names until then, should never return to the area.
Gideon Ayariga, a registered voter at Zawse primary school centre said he was surprised about the massive error after the EC spent huge monies in procuring new equipment to conduct the exercise.
