Election 2020: Ballot boxes, EC officials yet to arrive at Weija-Gbawe

Ballot boxes and voting materials for several polling stations in the Weija-Gbawe constituency are yet to arrive according to information gathered by Starrfm.com.gh.

At the New Vision polling station, election materials were yet to arrive as at 9am on Election day. Eyewitnesses who spoke to Starrfm.com.gh reported that even EC officials had not even arrived at several polling stations monitored.

Both the New Vision and New Bortianor polling stations were empty with no officials except queues of frustrated voters who were waiting to cast their vote.

Ghanaians are heading to the polls today Monday, December 7, 2020, to elect a President and 275 Parliamentarians.

Over 17 million voters are expected to take part in the exercise. The figure is  2 million more than the number of voters who voted in the previous election in 2016.

The electoral commission has said over 33,000 polling stations have been dedicated for the presidential and parliamentary polls.

The race is largely between the incumbent President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the NPP and former leader John Mahama of the NDC. Ten other presidential candidates are contesting in the polls.

Electoral materials have been dispatched to the various voting centres.

The Electoral Commission says it aims to declare results within 24hours.
