Estimated read time 2 min read

The Electoral Commission of Ghana, EC, will embark on a new voter registration exercise to capture new voters. It is part of efforts to ensure every eligible Ghanaian can exercise their franchise during the district assembly elections scheduled for December this year.

Jean Mensa, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission told journalists the exercise will enable voters who could not register during the last exercise in 2020. It will also offer all who turned 18 after that exercise to register for elections.

“The voter registration exercise will afford Ghanaians who have attained the age of 18 years, since the last registration of 2020 and others who are more than 18 years, but for various reasons couldn’t register during the 2020 registration exercise,” she announced.

Scheduled to take place towards mid-September the exercise will end on the second day of October, two months ahead of the assembly elections.

“The EC will embark on voter registration in all 268 district offices of the Commission. The exercise will be held from September 12 to October 2.”

Jean Mensa revealed that elections will be held at all the 6,272 electoral areas in the country except the Nkoranza North and South where it will be held in 2025. The district assembly elections will be held on December 19, 2023.
