The National Identification Authority (NIA) has postponed the mass distribution of the Ghana Card to Wednesday, 10 June 2020.

This was contained in a statement issued by the NIA. The exercise was initially slated for today [Monday, June 8, 2020], in all the 16 regions of Ghana.

The Authority said 3,875,441 printed cards will be issued to the applicants at some 5,635 registration centres.

After this round of card distribution, the NIA said the total number of Ghanaians who would have been served their cards will stand at 11,062,850.

This would help those with the Ghana card to register for their voter ID card or vouch for others without it to also register.

The Electoral Commission is using the Ghana card and passport as the only primary documents for the voter registration exercise.
