The Electoral Commission (EC) has officially announced the close of voting at all polling stations across the length and breadth of Ghana.
Per the EC’s schedule, voting began from 7 am and ended at 5 pm. However, some polling stations where there are still people in the queue are being allowed to cast their votes.
This was announced by the EC on their official Twitter timeline. Meanwhile, per the EC’s boss’ earlier words, the counting, collation and announcing of 2020 election results will be done within 24 hours after closing of polls.
The entire voting exercise has been generally peaceful with some pockets of disturbances in some constituencies across the country.
All Polling Stations are officially closed. However, persons who joined the queue before 5:00pm will go ahead to exercise their civic responsibility. #LetTheCitizenKnow#GhanaElections2020 pic.twitter.com/rK7HeXWLUB
