EC Limited Registration Exercise Goes Offline as Centers Face Challenges

The Commission expects to register 623,000 Ghanaians ahead of the December polls

The Electoral Commission (EC) has directed district officers to switch to offline mode for the limited voter registration exercise taking place in the 1,053 registration centers.

The new directives come as centers face network challenges with the online registration mode since the exercise began two days ago.

“The Commission apologizes for the delays experienced this afternoon. The Commission assures its stakeholders that, should there be a backlog of voters at the end of the 21-day process, the Registration Exercise will be extended beyond the 27th of May 2024 deadline,” said Acting Director of Public Relations Michael Boadu.

The Commission expects to register 623,000 Ghanaians ahead of the December polls. Should the turn-outs for this exercise be successful, that would add close to a million more individuals to Ghana’s voter register, which already holds details of about 17 million Ghanaians since the last election in 2020.
