Ghana: Electoral Commission announces new dates for voters registration

The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced August 4 to 13, 2014 as the new dates for the revision of the voters register. A statement signed by Mr Amadu Sulley, the Deputy Chairman (Operations) of the EC, said following the determination of the suit before the Supreme Court, applicants were to note that only a Ghanaian passport, a driver’s licence, a national identification card or an old voter ID card issued before the coming into force of CI 72 would 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,” it stated. It reminded applicants that those who qualified to be registered but did not have any of the required “identification documents may still have their registration guaranteed by two registered voters”. The statement said the registration would take place at designated centres in every electoral area and indicated that it would start at 7 a.m. and end at 6 p.m. each day.
