The Electoral Commission, (EC) will today Monday, July 18, begin the re-registration of voters who were deleted from the nation’s voters’ register because they used National Health Insurance (NHIS) cards as proof of nationality ahead of the 2012 elections.
The commission set the date after it announced it had deleted 56,772 names of such persons in compliance with the Supreme Court’s directive.
The Electoral Commission is also exhibiting the voters’ register from today to August 7.
“The date for the exhibition is slated for Monday 18 of July 2016, to 2nd August. This year’s exhibition exercise is a bit different from the previous ones for some reason. In other words, this particular exhibition exercise is characterized by three main innovations.
“First of all, the Commission has decided to extend the 10 to 14 days that we normally use for the exhibition exercise to 21 days,” the Director of Electoral Services at the EC, Mr. Samuel Tettey said at a news conference last week.
He stated that, the exercise is relevant because it “offers voters an opportunity to know where their polling station is.”
