EC : Election 2016 1m Voters Verified In 3 Days

The Electoral Commission has biometrically verified 1,003,812 voters at the close of the third day of the Voters’ Register Exhibition exercise.

The Electoral Management Body said the “exercise is progressing smoothly” although turnout has been “lower than expected.”

The 2016 Voters’ Register Exhibition exercise is taking place in 29,000 centres in Ghana and is in its fourth day.

“The Commission has deployed adequate personnel and equipment to ensure that all registered voters spend as little time as possible at the various centres to check their details and get their fingerprints verified,” a statement from the commission’s head of communications Eric Dzakpasu said.

It added: “We encourage every registered voter who has not yet done so, to take part in this all important exercise in order to avoid polling-day inconveniences.

“We urge the political stakeholders to call on their supporters, sympathisers and their friends and families to go out and get verified.

“We also call on the media to use your platforms to encourage all potential voters to visit their polling stations to get verified to vote.”
