The Electoral Commission (EC) has started with its one-day mass voter registration exercise today at their district offices across the country.
This exercise is to allow for those who were not able to register in the earlier mass registration exercise the opportunity to get their names on the electoral roll.
Although the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has taken some legal steps to stop the exercise, the High Court has given the EC the greenlight to go on with the exercise that will last only for a day, Thursday, October 1, 2020.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, September 30, 2020, the EC said eligible persons who register in this exercise will be able to vote in the December polls.
“As previously advertised, the Electoral Commission will undertake a one-day voters’ registration exercise…on Thursday, the 1st of October 2020 in all its district offices across the country…Eligible citizens who take advantage of this exercise will be able to vote in the December 2020 general elections,” the statement from the EC noted.
