The Electoral Commission will today, September 18, 2020 commence the exhibition of the provisional register for the 2020 elections.
The eight-day exercise is being carried out in all the 33,367 polling stations across the country.
The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Mrs Jean Mensa, said the commission had deployed 73,107 officials across the exhibition centres to ensure a successful exercise.
Speaking at the ‘Let the Citizens Know’ series in Accra yesterday, she said the officials the EC had deployed were made up of exhibition supervisors, deputy exhibition supervisors, verification officers, as well as COVID-19 ambassadors, whose role would be to help enforce the COVID-19 safety protocols.
Meanwhile, the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, has advised members and supporters of the party to verify their names on the provisional voters register.
Addressing the chiefs and people of Amanten in the Atebubu Amanten constituency, Mr Mahama said it would be unfortunate for any eligible voter to be disenfranchised because the person did not verify her or his name on the voters register during the Electoral Commission’s exhibition of the provisional voters register.
“We should use the energy that was exhibited during the voter registration exercise for the
exhibition exercise because it might happen that your name was not captured or was spelt
wrongly, and the needed correction will be done to enable you take part in the elections,”
