EC sets August 4th-13th for review of voters register

Following the determination of the suit before the Supreme Court the Electoral Commission will now embark on the Revision of the Voters Register from Monday, 4thto Wednesday 13th August, 2014.

Applicants are 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 C.I 72 will 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. Applicants are reminded that those who qualify to be registered but do not have any of the required identification documents may still have their registration guaranteed by two registered voters.

The registration will still take place at the designated centres in every electoral area.

The exercise will start at 7:00am and close at 6:00pm each day. SGD
