The Electoral Commission (EC) is set to display the provisional voters register from November 3 to November 7, 2023, preceding the District Level Elections (DLE) in Ghana

This showcase will span all 38,622 polling stations nationwide, commencing from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. throughout the exhibition period.

The primary objective of this display is to afford potential voters the opportunity to confirm their particulars, encompassing details such as name, age, gender, and assigned polling station.

Moreover, individuals can submit requests for alterations or additions if necessary. During this time, voters are also empowered to raise objections concerning unqualified individuals on the register or propose the removal of names belonging to deceased persons.

Deputy Chair of the EC, Samuel Tettey, disclosed these details at a press conference held in Accra on Wednesday. This move aims to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the voters register, fostering a transparent electoral process.

As part of the commission’s preparation towards the conduct of the district level elections slated for 19 November 2023, the commission will display or exhibit the provisional voters register at all the 38,622 polling stations across the country. The Commission will therefore exhibit the provisional voters register simultaneously at all polling stations which will serve as exhibition centres throughout the country from Friday 3rd November to Tuesday 7th November 2023.

The exhibition exercise will start at 7  a.m. and end at 6  p.m. throughout the exercise. The purpose of the exhibition exercise is to allow prospective voters to verify details. That is name, age, sex, etc as captured during the registration exercise, and make requests for amendments or insertions where necessary. It will also help voters to know their polling stations on the day of voting,”  he said.

As part of the public service announcement, voters are encouraged to actively participate in the verification exercise to contribute to the overall credibility of the electoral system.
