The Electoral Commission (EC) will today deploy registration officials to Senior High Schools across Ghana to issue voter ID cards to eligible voters.

A statement issued and signed by Mrs Sylvia Annoh, the Acting Director of Public Affairs, said the registration exercise would take place in all the Senior High Schools that did not have polling stations (registration centres) within the schools.

It, therefore, encouraged all those who are 18 years and above to present themselves at these registration centres with either a National Identity Card (Ghana Card) or a Ghana Passport. 

The statement said in the absence of any of these two documents, eligible applicants could use two guarantors who had already registered as voters to guarantee for them.

It said the Commission would ensure that all Covid-19 safety protocols are strictly complied with to guarantee the safety of all applicants and the registration officials.

The statement said the exercise would take place from July 10 to 11.

However, it said, additional days would be announced when it becomes necessary to ensure that all eligible applicants were registered.

It urged the Political Parties to send their Agents to these centres and encouraged all stakeholders to make this exercise a success.
