The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has indicated that there was a very low turnout by registered voters to check their names during the exhibition of the voters’ register in 2016.

EC Director of Elections Samuel Tettey, who was speaking on the challenges the commission faced during its pre-election preparation, indicated that there was “a low turnout of 46 per cent at the checking of names on the voters’ register”.

This was at a workshop for stakeholders to brainstorm on the 2016 electoral process to take stock of valuable lessons from the conduct of the elections to help inform and improve the conduct of future elections.

As part of its comprehensive observation and intervention to promote credible and peaceful elections, the Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO), with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is having the three-day workshop slated for March 27-29, 2017 at Ada in the Eastern Region.
