Electoral Commission Commences Limited Voter Registration Exercise Today

The Electoral Commission (EC) is set to commence a 21-day limited voter registration exercise today, Tuesday, May 7, 2024. The exercise targets first-time voters and individuals seeking to obtain a voter card.

According to the Chairperson of the EC, Madam Jean Mensa, the aim of the exercise is to register approximately 623,000 first-time voters nationwide. Registration will take place daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In anticipation of potential power outages, the EC has made arrangements for all district offices to rent generators. These generators will ensure continuous voter registration services, even in the event of “dumsor.” In the case of power outages, registration will switch to an “offline” mode, where voters will be registered manually, and their details will be stored on a pen drive. These details will then be copied into the EC’s system once power is restored, ensuring that the registration process is not disrupted.

Madam Jean Mensa emphasized that while the initial projection was to register 623,000 people, the commission is prepared to handle more registrations if necessary. She expressed confidence in the arrangements made to ensure a smooth registration process for all eligible voters.

The limited voter registration exercise will end on May 27, 2024, and is a crucial step in the lead-up to the next general elections.
