The two-week Electoral Commission's (EC) limited voter registration exercise, which began on Monday, June 17, ended peacefully at the Ashiaman District office on Sunday.

The exercise was to enable citizens who have turned 18 and new registrants to have their names registered for the 2020 election.

Mr Stephen Reynolds, District Electoral Officer of the Commission for the Ashaiman District, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that the exercise had been generally smooth despite the rains over the week.

He said although there were some few network challenges on the first day the exercise over the period has been successful.

Mr Reynolds said all the four Registration Centres worked effectively without any physical or technical challenges despite the large numbers that flooded the centres each day from all the 17 electoral areas within the District.

“The exercise starts as early as 0700 hrs and closed by 1800 hrs each day, and we were able to serve all those who report each day within this stipulated time," he said.

Mr Reynolds said that the exercise was not meant to replace missing cards and that those with such challenges had to wait for the EC to fix another time to attend to their challenges.

He commended the Ghana Police Service for their presence to ensure good security and the smooth running of the exercise, and representatives of the various political parties for their cooperation throughout the exercise.
